Irish cinema magic
for all ages to enjoy

Playlists of memorable short films courtesy of the Ciné Gael Montréal Irish Film Series


Due to COVID-19, Ciné Gael, Montreal’s Irish Film Festival, has had to postpone its March 28 screening of Irish Short Films.

In the meantime, we have assembled two playlists on YouTube of Irish Short Films, all very “Corona binge-worthy”. The first playlist has 38 films for all ages. The second playlist is culled from the first so that you can comfortably sit your children and grandchildren down and let them work through the list. (One minor word of warning: the final film on the children’s playlist ends on a dark, albeit humorous, note.)

Thanks to Heather Macdougall and Kester Dyer for their shorts programming skills over the years, which has led to the creation of these great playlists.

Long time devotees of Ciné Gael Short Films Evenings will find many familiar and memorable shorts. Enjoy!
