We’re setting you a challenge: submit your own 15 Second Film to be included in this year’s Festival. You don’t have to be a god of the film industry, not even a trainee Jedi, you just need to have one thing: a good idea. If your submission is accepted, we will give you the support you need to turn your concept into an object of cinematic enchantment. You can be director, producer, editor… it’s up to you. We’re here, with an experienced team and a studio, to get the very best out of you. Unlike typical film festivals, the films come with us on tour all year round, displayed in our fleet of extraordinary mobile cinemas at prestigious events all over Ireland, Great Britain and the rest of the world. What’s more, our panel of judges selects an overall winner and some runners-up each year to receive prizes for their efforts.

So what’s stopping you, It’s only 15 seconds? Easy… right?


Regardless of your background, don’t just sit there, take up the challenge and submit a film for the festival. It may just be the best decision you make this year. All the details you need are here.


You give a little love and it all comes back to you. In the last few years, the makers of the best 15 second films have received prizes including professional filmmaking software. See what you could get your clever little fingers on.


The 15 Second Film Festival operates from the friendly Mediazoo studios in Belfast. A comprehensive range of studio services and equipment is on offer, including Northern Ireland’s biggest green screen. The studio is located right by the city centre and is available for private or corporate hire.
