The Dublin Feminist Film Festival is back! This festival is perfect for media students. It will introduce you to the latest movies made by women and their importance in making the world more inclusive for women.

Dublin Feminist Film Festival has established firm roots on Dublin’s cultural calendar since 2014, shining a spotlight on women in film. DFFF promotes and celebrates female filmmakers, hoping to inspire and empower others to get involved in filmmaking.

The festival will run from 20th – 22nd of August. The majority of the programme will be available to watch online via IFI @HOME. The festival will also have 2 theatrical screenings at IFI, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, including Cathy Brady’s Award Winner WILDFIRE. The Full programme will be available on the 9th of August.

If you can’t wait until the festival why not check out some women-led films available of the IFI@Home player now such as Promising Young Woman, starring Carey Mulligan and Alison Brie, I Never Cry and Tove.

IFI@Home is run by the Irish Film Institute (IFI). The IFI is Ireland’s national cultural institution for film. It provides audiences throughout Ireland with access to the finest independent, Irish and international cinema. It 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.

This festival is also great for media students because it’s an opportunity to network and learn about how to get involved. That’s right, you too could have your film put up on the big screen in the IFI for next year’s festival. The Dublin Feminist Film Festival takes submissions through Film Freeway.
