IFI International returns to the Galway Film Fleadh to look at Irish cinema on a global stage

A driving force in the promotion of Irish film around the world, IFI International will be at the Galway Film Fleadh in 2014 for a special industry session at the Galway Film Fair at 4.15pm on Friday 11th July at the Joyce Suite, Radisson Hotel.

The session, chaired by Sunniva O’Flynn, IFI Head of Irish Film Programming, will include a discussion about distribution of Irish cinema through international cultural channels and create a space for festival programmers, filmmakers, and funders to meet. There will be presentations from exhibitors in English and non-English speaking territories and will identify funding and other resources available to international exhibitors of Irish film.  

Panellists include Caitriona Ryan (Culture Ireland), Niall McKay (Director, Irish Film New York), Susanna Pelis (Director, Rome Irish Film Festa), Soracha Pelan Ó Treasaigh (IFI International Co-ordinator) and Gerry Shirren (Managing Director, Cartoon Saloon).

IFI International provides Irish film programming services for cultural exhibitors worldwide. Drawing on the collections of the IFI Irish Film Archive and liaising with Irish film directors, producers and distributors, IFI International provides access for cultural exhibitors to new and classic Irish cinema.

Supported by Culture Ireland, IFI International works with over 100 exhibition partners in more than 40 countries annually to strategically 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 who may be unfamiliar with Irish culture.
