Discover film, reimagine the world
Cork International Film Festival’s mission is to present Ireland’s most exciting, diverse and ambitious annual film festival, connecting and stimulating audiences and artists through a carefully curated selection of the best films. We champion the power of film to challenge and delight, to spark conversation, encourage action, and create a unique cultural experience of discovery, rooted in Cork, open to the world.
We are a local, national and international celebration of cinema, running annually in venues and online in November. As we approach our 70th edition, Ireland’s first and largest film festival remains imaginative and pioneering, ambitious and innovative, supportive and welcoming.
