The Irish Film Institute brings films from the collections of the IFI Irish Film Archive back to the counties in which they were made with Local Films for Local People, a nationwide tour that will take in Waterford, Kerry, Tipperary, Galway, Leitrim and Clare, running from April to October. An exciting and varied programme of county-specific films presented in collaboration with a range of cultural partners around the country. Now in its third year, Local Films for Local People provides an accessible route for a broad range of audiences to their county’s film heritage which is preserved in the IFI Irish Film Archive.
The programmes carry invaluable documents of domestic life, school days, agriculture, industry, sport, music and more. Many of the programmes, which date from the earliest days of cinema to recent times, include ciné-concerts featuring silent films accompanied by local musicians.
