Rathmullan Film Fest Home > Local Legend Campaign



We are so excited to be launching Legends Next Door: Celebrating Local Heroes. 

We want you - yes you, no matter what age you are or how much filmmaking experience you have - to get involved in this year’s festival by making a 2-minute film (any genre!) about your hero in the local community. The films will premiere at the Gala Night with prizes at our Oscars ceremony.

Each year at the festival we hear people saying ‘I wish I knew I could get involved in the film festival’, ‘I’d love to make a film for next year’s festival’, ‘I want to make a film but I’m not sure where to start’. 2024 is the year to get involved! Whether it's your next door neighbour, a friend down the road or someone in the local area who you think is a true hero, we want you to tell their story.


Here’s what we are looking for:

  • Create a short film - max 3 mins - using your phone, tablet, whatever’s easiest for you!

  • Showcase a local hero - it can be any genre!

  • Submit to our email using

  • Please include your name and contact details. You can also tell us in a few lines what inspired your film.

  • The films will be shown at the fabulous Oscar's Ceremony Gala Night.


Some housekeeping rules:

  • DO NOT film other people without their consent (they have to agree to be filmed AND agree to the film being used and shared publicly)

  • DO NOT share files directly to our Facebook or upload them to your own social media.

  • By submitting your video to us, you’re confirming that all rules were followed and consent is given to the Film Festival for the film to be used online and to be archived.

  • First deadline: 15th January
