IFI National’s Local Films For Local People programme, now in its fourth year, returns for another nationwide tour of treasures from the IFI Irish Film Archive

May 3rd, 2017: After a hugely popular programme in 2016, the Irish Film Institute will once again tour nationwide with films from the collections of the IFI Irish Film Archive. Throughout the year, programmes of local interest will be presented in cinemas and arts centres around the country, providing an accessible route to film heritage for a broad range of audiences. The programmes include both professional and amateur films documenting domestic life, school days, agriculture, industry, sport, music and much more. Some of the programmes, which date from the earliest days of cinema to recent times, include cine-concerts featuring silent films accompanied by local musicians.
