AVA – Cork Film Festival All Year Round
AVA is live! You can now enjoy films from the 2016 Festival all year round, for free, via our new online film library, AVA. We’ve installed special viewing stations in Central Library Cork, and launched the project with ‘Best of Cork’, a programme of short films from the 2016 Festival, made in Cork and by Cork filmmakers. Two further programmes of Irish and World shorts will follow this summer. Cork Film Festival is the first Irish festival, and one of only seven festivals across Europe to pilot this new European-wide project to bring festival films to public libraries.
Academy Award® Qualifying Shorts
Cork Film Festival makes an number of awards, and the Awards for Grand Prix irish Short and Grand Prix International Short, are both Academy Award® qualifying, ensuring that the winners in Cork are included in the Oscars’ long list. Submissions for the 2017 Festival are still open; the deadline for shorts, features and documentaries is 24th June. Visit http://corkkfilmfest.org/submi
