7th Festival 2020

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

The Wexford Documentary Film Festival takes place every year, in the working fishing village of Kilmore Quay. WDFF is a not-for-profit film festival, screening local, national and international films with a focus on works that explore social, political and environmental issues, including films that relate to maritime life and coastal communities.

Covid-19 restrictions imposed during August meant our main festival programme plans were no longer possible. We knew all ​along there was the possibility that the festival may not happen, so we had a Plan B. We figured if people couldn’t come to the festival this year, then we’d bring the festival to them! In response the festival has created a unique and novel event called Festival at Home.
The “Festival at Home” programme is available to audiences living in County Wexford who can book films from our “Festival at Home” programme on our website and have them delivered free of charge to their doorstep by our team. Keoghs crisps have kindly donated some tasty gourmet popcorn treats which will be delivered with the film !
We have four different film boxes some include options for films on DVD or on a USB stick. You can book one box per household:
  • Box 1 USB stick featuring a selection of International, Irish and Wexford short films including submissions from our 3 minute film challenge.
  • Box 2 DVD featuring the films “Nae Pasaran” and “Landline”
  • Box 3 DVD featuring “Following the Ninth and a selection of Irish short films
  • Box 4 USB stick featuring “ Following the Ninth” and a selection of Irish short films.
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
