Richard Harris, Getty imagesMany thanks for submitting your film to the 9th Richard Harris International Film Festival 2021, which we have had the pleasure of viewing, and our international jury has evaluated. Once again, we are simply blown away by the quality of films submitted to the festival, particularly given the extraordinarily difficult circumstances over the last year.

It had been our intention to hold a full in-person festival this year to celebrate the art of film-making, as nothing beats meeting, viewing, and discussing films in person. Unfortunately, due to a number of reasons outside our control (including not receiving clarity regarding the easing of Covid restrictions until the end of August) once again, regrettably, we have had to postpone this edition of the festival and the in-person festival screenings.

Please note that your selected film is an official selection of the festival and is still eligible for all the RHIFF 21 awards (including eligibility for IFTA nominations for Irish films) and, once again, we will be hosting a Virtual Awards Show in the coming weeks to announce the Jury’s selections. We will be providing details on this event soon.

Yours in film,
The Richard Harris International Film Festival

On behalf of the organizing committee we would like to thank you for your interest in The Richard Harris International Film Festival.
This Irish film festival will celebrate the life and works of Richard Harris and those who follow in his footsteps. Affiliated to I.F.T.A. (Irish Film and Television Awards) and collaborating with Newport Beach Film Festival one of the core objectives of #RHIFF is to offer a platform where Irish and International film-makers from home and abroad can meet, collaborate and view each other's work.
