Irish Film Institute (IFI)

Irish Film Centre

The Irish Film Institute (IFI) has the national remit for film education. Operating from its base in Temple Bar, the IFI delivers an extensive schools programme in Dublin and at partner venues nationwide. From a core principal of access, the IFI Education programme offers a wide range of film screenings and film-based activities, developed around the concepts of film education, film as curricular support, film as art form and film and media literacy. Through partner venues across the country, we tour films to support modern language teaching and collaborate with leading festivals for young audiences; we create opportunities for critical engagement with filmmakers, through guest events and workshops. Alongside screenings, IFI Education has developed a Short Course in Film for Junior Cycle, in conjunction with FĺS Film Project and Fresh Film Festival. Our annual Careers in Screen Day connects young people directly with the screen industries, through a day of talks and workshops with guests from across the professions. Outside of school, IFI offers cultural cinema access to young people and families through our film club pilot, our family festival and monthly screenings, and our teen explorers’ and young critics’ initiatives.
