Description

Celebrating its 64th edition in 2019 (7th-17th Nov), Cork Film Festival (CFF) is Ireland’s first and largest film festival, showcasing the latest and best international and Irish features, documentaries and shorts. CFF makes 9 awards, including 3 Academy Award® qualifying for Grand Prix Irish, International and Doc Shorts. Programme includes strands for schools, families, a focus on film & mental health, classics, music docs, cine-concerts, special events and 3 Industry Days, including Doc Day.

Objective

Our mission is to connect people through great film, engaged conversation and a shared cultural experience. The Festival is a dynamic conversation with our audiences: the filmmakers who make the work, the industry who enable us to share that work, and the public, from young people exploring the world through film for the first time to the committed cinephile. 400+ films/events engage over 18,000 people in an international cultural event, uniquely framed by Cork city, Ireland’s cultural capital.
