The 2020/2021 IFI Schools’ Programme will this year be presented online via IFI@Schools, the IFI’s new schools streaming platform. IFI@Schools is an accessible and affordable way to present film content in the classroom, with the usual diverse and exciting selection of films you have come to expect from the IFI’s annual schools offer.
If you want to dive straight in, you can visit the site now at www.ifischools.ie. You can also go straight to the Getting Started page for your step-by-step guide to getting set up.
The IFI@Schools home page provides a clear pathway to the site. From here, you can browse the fantastic selection of films available to view, explore the site’s subscription options, or find the answers to any questions you might have in relation to the site.
On the top menu, can also click into the section to see how the site works and how you can get started.
The How It Works section provides clear guidance as to how your school can get started on the platform and how, in turn, individual teachers can access the content they want their students to watch in the classroom.
On this page, you will also be able to access our step-by-step guides and details on how to contact us.
You’ll also want to know what films you can watch as part of the IFI@Schools platform. The Browse Films page has all that information, with the available films classified by main subject topics, and by class year and type.
Each of the titles also has its own subject tags to guide you to the best choices for your students. Click the ‘Learn More’ button to access detailed information about each film, including the running time and the age recommendations.
Now that you’ve explored the site, you’re ready to subscribe! Visit the Subscribe page to pick the option most appropriate for you, be that a Primary or Post-Primary subscription. Open the account for the school and make your payment. Once payment has been completed, you’ll receive a confirmation email. You’ll then be ready to generate your Teacher Passes and access a world of great films in the classroom!
