SF Irish Film DocFest 2021, founded in 2003, presents the very best in contemporary Irish cinema, celebrating everything from features to documentaries and short film. The Docfest, which began in 2017, is a celebration of award-winning Irish documentary film and is a highlight of the year, taking place during March. It is a unique opportunity to share Irish made documentary film and celebrates the Irish storyteller over the course of one day event.
Our audience spans both the Irish community and wider bay area community and as such we create a wider appreciation of the Irish film form, our talent in the industry, bringing award winning films that highlight Ireland’s role in the world, socially, politically, and culturally.
As a voluntary organization we rely on grants and sponsorship to provide these annual programs and regularly partners with other Bay Area organizations to promote and screen Irish film.
