Cork County Council and Fastnet Film Festival online short film programme – week 1

Cork County Council and the Fastnet Film Festival have come together to bring you 16 family friendly short films, all with a Cork Connection. These shorts have been screened over the years at the Festival in Schull. We will screen four new shorts each week during the month of December and all 16 will be available to viewers for the month of January.

This re-imagining of the festival and this focus on Cork film for the month of December and January, is a beacon of hope for the Arts, for filmmaking and for Ireland. We hope it will whet the appetite for Fastnet Film Festival 2021.
