Irish Film Institute -IFI FAMILY FESTIVAL 2015: ABOUT


This summer we take you on some rollicking film adventures to an Arctic island, Indian backstreets, a Canadian sports pitch and a very average German town. Step inside the head of Pixar’s Riley in Inside Out, watch New Yorker Mickey and her pals try to save a team of wild horses in Wicklow, and find out just exactly what Esio Trot means. Add to your adventure and learn how to screen print, illustrate a picture book and make your very own film trailer in our workshops. What’s more, during the festival look out for fun activities for all in the IFI foyer and visit our Pop-Up Cinema.

We’re thrilled to welcome RTÉjr’s Clara Murray who will open the Festival, and you can meet her and other guests over the weekend. Your summer adventures start here!
