Message from President Michael D. Higgins
As Honorary Patron of the Irish Film Institute I welcome this important new strategy. The IFI has created a rich cultural space in Ireland; one which allows members and visitors to experience and explore the many different elements that make up the multi-faceted art form that is film making. This innovative and creative strategy will build on that important work, helping to ensure that the arts continue to be relevant and central in our ever-changing and evolving society.
