Catch up on our third annual focus on Irish film and television, IFI Spotlight 2015. All the talks and panels are now available to listen as podcasts.
Spotlight 2015 presents a day-long space for in-depth critical engagement with current Irish media culture. IFI Spotlight invites filmmakers, critics, academics and consumers to join us in reviewing the Irish film and television output of the last 12 months and in evaluating the health of Irish moving image culture in national and international terms. We believe that an annual process of considered reflection is essential for the development of a healthy Irish film culture, an informed production community and a cine-literate audience.
