About the Festival
Dublin Independent Film Festival aims to screen a high-quality program of indie films from all over the world and to create a venue for filmmakers and audiences to connect. The Festival’s goal is to discover new talent, films and filmmakers with potential, and to recognise the collaborative work this artform is funded on.
The program will focus on independent films of different genres, with no limitations on length, style or country of origin. After the screening there will be an award ceremony and a networking event with filmmakers and audience opening a space to meet inspiring people from the film industry.
The celebration will take place on the 5th of November at Light House Cinema Smithfield from 6 to 11pm. The entrance is free of charge and seating is on a first come, first served basis.
DIFF is run in association with Close:Up, a collection of international film festivals supporting indie filmmaking. By establishing a working network with filmmakers, producers and marketing professionals, we share one common goal: to forge productive and lasting relationships between independent filmmakers and audiences.
We are now open for submissions for our 2020 event.
