The 7th Wexford Documentary Film Festival

Following the Ninth

The 7th Wexford Documentary Film Festival is coming soon.

Full programme will be announced shortly.

Welcome to the “Festival at Home” edition of the Wexford Documentary Film Festival, which will run until the end of October 2020.

This year’s edition allows audiences in County Wexford to select 1 of 4 options and we will deliver this to your home along with some gourmet popcorn, being Keogh’s Crisps generous contribution to this event. A return stamped addressed envelope will be enclosed for the return of films.

Having worked hard to creatively address the challenges of organising the festival we are pleased to offer you a curated selection of films from around the world, along with some wonderful home-grown films, including a selection from Wexford. It is, of course, thanks to the talented work of these filmmakers and artists that this event is possible.

The festival programme engages with very timely, relevant, local and global issues in society. Films include Following The Ninth, a story about the power of music and human resilience in dark times and Nae Pasaran, a film that charts the power and impact of international solidarity.
Our short film programme and 3 minute film challenge, have always been festival favourites. This year’s short film theme is “The Artist as Activist”, which filmmakers have explored across different genres, with subjects ranging from minority cultures to the absurdity of the art market.

For now our plans for a full festival programme are paused, however we look forward to a time when we will gather together for a shared cinema experience again. In the meantime we hope you enjoy the films as much as we have.

Take Care

From All the Festival Team
