Wexford Documentary Film Festival

Wexford Documentary Film festival 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. The festival hosts filmmakers from all over the world for the festival weekend each year, bringing locals and visitors together in this unique intimate village setting. The festival places an emphasis on post screening discussions between filmmakers, local organisations, politicians, activists and the film audience. It aims to promote filmmaking in the region with a series of workshops and masterclasses throughout the festival weekend. The WDFF aspires to be as accessible as possible and to date all film screenings and workshops have been free and open to the public. Artists Andi McGarry and Augustine O Donoghue are the founder members and co- directors of Wexford Documentary Film Festival. The festival has grown in size and ambition over the years and is now organised by a festival team, made up of artists, filmmakers, local residents, including experts of different backgrounds and experience. This years festival takes place as a Festival at Home event in place of our usual festival format.
