Welcome to IFI International, the Irish Film Institute’s global streaming service, making Irish film available for cultural exhibition worldwide. We are delighted to expand our already far-reaching activities with this new programme, where we will work with our international partners and festivals to present a wide-ranging programme of Irish film online. To get started, create an account, browse your festival film page and add to your Watchlist. If you need any help getting started, visit the How to Guide that should answer all your questions. Every festival page will be exclusively available to that geographic region. As an example, only patrons from Italy will be able to stream films presented by the Irish Film Festa Rome.
The Irish Film Institute is Ireland’s national cultural institution for film. It provides audiences throughout Ireland with access to the finest independent, Irish and international cinema, preserves and promotes Ireland’s moving image heritage through the IFI Irish Film Archive, and provides opportunities for audiences of all ages and backgrounds to learn and critically engage with film.
Supported by Culture Ireland, IFI International works with over 100 exhibition partners in more than 50 countries annually to develop a global audience for Irish film culture. Irish film programmes are presented in contexts which enhance understanding of Irish cinema and which provide new routes for audiences to engage with Irish culture. The IFI is delighted to support its international partners by providing virtual access to Irish film via this new streaming platform.
