The National Irish Science Fiction Film Awards (THE GOLDEN BLASTERS) is a film festival open to entries from across the world and is dedicated to the art of the short film and screenplay in the genres of Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy.
It is our aim to bring greater recognition and attention to those Film makers and Screenwriters who create speculative fiction in the format of the short film.
The Festival will be held this year as part of Dublin 2019 – An Irish Worldcon, to be held in Dublin on the 15th – 19th of August 2019. In Celebration we will be awarding our coveted Blaster trophy in three categories
Best Picture ( Golden Blaster)
Audience Award (Silver Blaster)
Short Screenplay (Golden Blaster)
Each film and Screenplay selected are nominated for the award and have the right to also list themselves as nominees in that category.
