Enjoy Cork Film Festival all year round with AVA

Catch up on short films that premiered in Cork Film Festival programmes through AVA, our free online library of Short Films.

Cork Film Festival is Ireland’s first and largest film festival, a local, national and international celebration of cinema, showcasing the very best Irish, international, and independent film over 10 days each November in Cork city. Over 90% of the features, documentaries, family and short films we present will be the only opportunity for Cork audiences to see these films on the big screen.

Cork Film Festival has been championing short film for many years, presenting new voices from a vibrant and growing filmmaking community in Cork and beyond. The Festival’s Grand Prix Irish and International Short Film Awards are Academy Award® qualifying, ensuring that the winners in Cork join the Oscars’ long list.

Our free online library, AVA, enables audiences to enjoy films that premiered at recent Cork Film Festivals, all year round. New titles will be added to the catalogue each year following the most recent Festival. We thank the featured filmmakers and hope that their work may inspire others to tell their stories through film.
