Lockdown after lockdown scuppered our plans for a physical event last year but we are back with live and in-person offerings from 13-17 October here in the heart of Ireland. Joins us for our Competition Shorts, Made in the Midlands night, Educational Screenings and more.

Our OFFline Animation residents have also been beavering away for the last six months and you’ll also get to see their work specially developed in Birr too. So, mark your calendars and get planning your trip to the Midlands for a feast of film!

2021 Shorts Award Winners

Every year, we receive 100s of submissions from all over the world to our Shorts Competition. Find out more about who’s been selected to screen at OFFline 2021.


Since 2018, animators have taken up residence in Birr for six months to develop, grow and nurture their orginal work. One of our first residents, Jack O’Shea, has since gone on to win an IFTA!
