Welcome to the 6th Underground Cinema Film Festival

A champion of emerging filmmakers, Underground Cinema has the belief that no matter what the film’s budget or the director’s vision it’s the filmmakers passion that drives a film.

This year presents a new generation of adventurous independent filmmaking, in which boundaries are explored, pushed and often broken. The creative means employed in these films will take audiences on a wild ride towards the future of cinematic storytelling.

As technology allows greater access to short and feature films as well as filmmaking tools, an increasing number of people are turning to filmmaking as a form of expression and an opportunity to explore creative freedom. The fact that we received 300 more submissions than last year is proof of this. Within these films we saw a wave of truly original and outrageously distinctive films united by their uncompromised spirit. 

The 6th Underground Cinema Film Festival takes place in the magnificent Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire from September 10th to the 13th.  We look forward to welcoming you
