IFI International facilitated 80 events in 30 countries worldwide in 2017 ensuring Irish film reached a wider audience than ever on the cultural festival circuit. 2018 kicked off with a new festival, the Fenians, Fremantle and Freedom Festival in Western Australia, commemorating the 150th anniversary of the landing of the last convict ship, and now we look ahead to St. Patrick’s Day during the busiest month of the year for Irish film festivals around the globe with 30 events taking place.
Both Chicago Irish Film Festival and Capital Irish Film Festival in Washington took place from the 1st to the 4th of March with a successful programme of film which included Oscar-nominated animation The Breadwinner, and documentary feature In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America.
Belgrade Irish Festival, 9th to 11th of March, goes from strength to strength and this year boasts an eclectic programme of Serbian premieres including Song of Granite, Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami, and Moscow Never Sleeps along with a wide range of concerts, literary events and photography exhibitions.
