Join us in Galway, Limerick and Dublin or online for an entertaining screening of European short films & vote for your favourite one! Comedy, laughter, drama & more: dare to have a good time with some of the best European short films!

Action, comedy, animation, drama – expect this and more from Short Shorts from Europe Film Festival – a selection of European short films from the home countries of ten members of EUNIC Ireland (European Union National Institutes for Culture).

Let Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain and the UK entertain you with a variety of genres from contemporary, cutting-edge filmmakers. Cork International Film Festival, the IFI and Limerick School of Art and Design will also present short films from Ireland on the programme.

This year the UK film is The Chippie, a gripping short story about Junior, a young boy who braves a notorious chip shop to find his missing brother.

Deon Williams is missing. And he's not the first person to disappear unexpectedly. Deon’s mates have their theories on who might be responsible, always bringing it back to the figures of authority who make their lives difficult. But there is one suspect that stands out the most - the shady proprietor of the rundown chip shop on the edge of the estate... something just isn’t right about him. Deon’s brother Junior resolves to go in and find out the truth.

After the screening the audience will be asked to vote for their favourite film via their smartphone.
