The annual appointment with the finalists of the Italian Fusion Festival – Short Video Competition proposes a program of 6 short videos organised in Dublin by Radio Dublino, in partnership with the Italian Institute of Culture.

The Short Video Competition has been an integral part of the Italian Fusion Festival since its start in 2013 and aims to offer a spotlight to Italian-Irish film productions in Ireland wishing to showcase their works on several platforms. The artists involved, mainly Italian and Irish, express a true artistic fusion of elements of both cultures. The directors of the short videos will be at the event, and they will present their videos.
