The home of film in Ireland. Be part of it.


“Film is history, with every foot of film that is lost we lose a link to our culture, to the world around us, and to ourselves.”
– Martin Scorsese

As a registered charity, the philanthropic support of Members & Friends like you is what enables us to enhance the cinema experience in Dublin, reach and teach more students across Ireland, and connect future generations to their past through the work of the IFI Irish Film Archive – all through the power of film.
