Clones Film Festival - Ireland’s Biggest Little Film Festival - will once again offer an action-packed programme featuring new Irish & international cinema releases, interviews, documentaries, short film competitions, children’s films and live music festival club this October bank holiday weekend (Thurs 27 – Sun 30 October 2016). This is the 15th year of CFF and screenings will be hosted in Clones Courthouse, the old Post Office and other venues around town.
We, as a committee, are delighted to bring to you another taste of world cinema that will surely add to the cultural development and enhancement of Clones. It is our pleasure to share short, feature and documentary films over the 4 days of the festival with such an appreciative audience who have supported this festival year after year. The Francies, our very own version of the Oscars, have established themselves as a stepping stone for the real thing! Our 48 hour.
I Paraphrase Patrick Kavanagh "Clones has a standing army of Film Makers and you say...why Clones?....Well Why Not Clones? Eugene Mc Cabe, Playwright, Co. Monaghan.
I'm goin to the Clones Film Festival again this year, cause there's no where else like it on the planet, It's good for the sanity, it's full of electricity. Jinx Lennon, Bespectacled Madman.
“I can highly recommend this festival and its slightly bonkers team as the friendliest & most fun film festival in Ireland.”Peter ‘Magic’ Johnston, 15 Second Film Festival
...The Festival itself...has a wonderful sense of family about it. Clones ? the streets are thronged with the weird, the unpredictable and the brilliant... Barry Devlin, Musician.
