About the Festival
Cork International Film Festival is a local, national and international celebration of cinema, running annually in November each year in Cork. The 64th edition took place from 7th – 17th November 2019. Award-winning films from the international film festival circuit, new discoveries and cinema classics are selected by our experienced curatorial team to be shown on the big screen in Cork. The Festival showcases the latest and best international and Irish features, documentaries and shorts, and includes programmes for schools, families, 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.

Over 90% of the films presented in the Festival are the only opportunity for audiences to see these films on the big screen in Cork and Ireland. In 2019 the Festival screened over 300 films. The Festival reached an audience of over 20,000, with further public engagement online via a combined social media following of 33,000, generating €2.5 million in revenue locally.

The Festival presents nine awards, including Gradam Spiorad na Féile / Spirit of the Festival Award, (presented by The Gate Cinema), Gradam na Féile do Scannáin Faisnéise / Award for Cinematic Documentary, and the Audience Award, (presented by The River Lee). Its awards for Grand Prix Irish Short (presented by RTÉ), Grand Prix International Short and Grand Prix Documentary Short Award are Academy Award® qualifying, ensuring that the winners in Cork automatically join the Oscars’ longlist.

Cork International Film Festival takes place across key city-centre venues: The Gate Cinema, (Principal Venue Partner), The Everyman, and Triskel Christchurch, with special presentations in a variety of other city and county locations. The Festival benefits from significant institutional and partnership support. This includes support from principal funder, the Arts Council, Creative Europe, Cork City Council and Arts Office, Fáilte Ireland, Screen Ireland, Screen Skills Ireland, HSE, ESB Energy for Generations Fund, Fundraising Fellowship Ireland, Culture Ireland and Creative Ireland, together with substantial media partners the national broadcaster RTÉ, (Principal Media Partner), The Irish Examiner, and Red FM.
