Please note:

  • The period from January to end of April is the busiest for IFI International, with the majority of events scheduled in March and April around international St. Patrick’s Day festivals.
  • It may take some time to clear screening rights and negotiate fees with sales agents and/or distributors. If clearances are proving problematic in the given time-frame you will be advised to choose an alternative film.
  • During the major film festivals and markets [Berlinale, Cannes, Venice, Sundance, TIFF] sales agents and distributors may not be available therefore the clearance process will take longer. Where sales agents are in negotiations with distributors films may also not be available for festival screenings.
  • Your request will be added to IFI International’s Production and Delivery Schedule and handled in order of priority, and towards the festival start date – if you have an earlier deadline it is your responsibility to inform us in a timely manner.
  • Most sales agents and distributors will supply encrypted DCPs. Where IFI produces DCPs, these will be encrypted. If IFI has been supplied an unencrypted DCP by the filmmaker, this will remain unencrypted.
  • The IFI International programme is funded by Culture Ireland. The core funder of IFI is Arts Council Ireland. IFI, Culture Ireland and Arts Council Ireland logos must be carried on publicity materials, printed, online, and onscreen idents. You may occasionally be required to carry additional logos.
  • You are required to complete a Feedback Form within 10 working days of the end of your event. This forms part of IFI International’s contractual reporting obligations under the Programme Delivery Agreement with Culture Ireland, the programme funder.
  • You must inform us immediately if your screening date or venue changes.
