After a hugely successful inaugural year, the Boyne Valley International Film Festival returns in 2023, and will continue to create an environment for filmmakers and audiences to connect, and celebrate film in the historical medieval town of Drogheda. 

Submissions for this year's festival are now open on Film Freeway.
As well as the opportunity to have your work screened, there is also a short film bursary on offer for your next project with applications open in April. Watch this space!

Produced by Droichead Arts Centre in partnership with LOVE Drogheda BIDS and curated by acclaimed filmmaker and Boyne Valley native Frank W. Kelly and Collette Farrell, Droichead Arts Centre Director, this three day event will feature the best short films from around the country, and the world, with a special focus on films made in the region, combined with masterclasses and in conversations with film makers.
