Due to the current situation and the restrictions and social distancing imposed in order to help the spreading of Covid-19, Shot by the Sea as many other festivals is moving online until we are able to have a big screen event which we hope will be on the 26th of November.


Hundreds of fantastic films have been submitted for this year’s competition and we celebrated these submissions by screening some of them online. 


We have created a YouTube Channel – “Shot By the Sea” and hope to screen some of the submissions once the Gala event is over.


We invite filmmakers to submit their films to us via email  shotbythesea@gmail.com. Films must be no longer than 6 minutes and must have been shot by the sea. All genres are welcome but your film must have a story that is set by, on, in or about the Sea, a coastal village or town.


Note : 


SBTS films “Official Selection” does not guarantee that films will be screened at the Gala screening night. It does mean that “official selection” films are in consideration and being short listed as possible films for the Gala Screening. 


Shot by the Sea is partnered with The Village Salthill and is funded by Galway 2020 as part of the Small Towns Big Ideas programme
