Cork Film Festival is Ireland’s first and largest film festival. It is a local, national and international celebration of cinema running annually each November in Cork.
The Festival showcases over 240 of the latest and best international and Irish features, documentaries and shorts, and includes programmes for schools, families, classics, a focus on film and mental health (Illuminate) and specialist Industry Days, including Doc Day, cementing the Festival as the destination festival for documentary in Ireland.
The Festival welcomes submissions of features and shorts, and all forms of film production – fiction, documentary, animation, experimental, etc. We look for interesting new voices and work that pushes boundaries and takes risks. We champion new voices and celebrate excellence in filmmaking throughout our programme, which features over 240 titles. We also recognise filmmakers’ achievements through our nine Awards, two of which are Academy Award® qualifying.
