The image for FFF 2024 has been chosen from over 2,000 stills submitted to competition this year and we love it. It's from the short film 'Bird Drone',  Directed by Radheya Jang Jegatheva

519 short films have been submitted to FFF 2024, an incredible testament to the vibrancy, creativity, and diversity of the global filmmaking community. The sheer volume of submissions showcases an astonishing range of stories, perspectives, and voices, highlighting the rich tapestry of human experience across cultures, geographies, and genres. Once the Selection Judges have viewed all films, 150+ films will be selected for screening in Schull in May. We wish all of our incredible submitters the very best of luck.
