Irish Film Institute -Development



In response to schools and cinema closures during 2020/21, we launched a streaming platform for schools, 

This unique platform offers a host of film content for showing in the classroom, accessible by school pass or bundle offer. Easy to navigate and programmed according to school levels or subjects, teachers across the country can bring film into their teaching using this service. 

Junior Cycle Short Course in Film

One of the most exciting developments of the revised Junior Cycle is the designation of a number of short courses as part of students’ overall assessment. In partnership with FĺS Film in Schools and Fresh Film Festival we offer a Short Course in Film that focuses on Watching, Making and Sharing. The course is available to download here.

IFI Careers in Screen

Now running across the school year, IFI Careers in Screen connects young people (15-18) with industry practitioners through a mix of online and in-person talks and masterclasses, running throughout the school year and made available online through our platform, IFI Careers Space. 

IFI Film Club Project

Our Film Club pilot project ran 2017-2021, in association with Into Film (NI).

You can see the final report and recommendations here Film-Club-Final-Report (1)
