Irish Film London, now in its eighth year, presents the latest and greatest of Irish Film & Animation to a London audience. The organisation runs events through the year, including the film section of the St. Patrick’s Day Festival with the Mayor of London and the annual Irish Film London Awards. Its activities then culminate in the 5 day Irish Film Festival London in November each year.

Through Premiere screenings, Director Q&A sessions, related workshops, exhibitions and performances, the organisation aims to bring together industry professionals, film fans and fans of Irish Arts & Culture alike. Focusing on Irish productions, scripts and casts, IFL strives to provide a significant platform for Irish Film in London, and to ensure that the best of Irish creative talent is continually promoted here in the UK.

IFL Patrons include Academy Award-winning director Lenny Abrahamson (Room, Frank, What Richard Did), and world renowned casting director Ros Hubbard (The Hobbit, The Commitments, Father Ted).

Support for IFL comes, in part from the Irish Film Board, Culture Ireland, the Arts Council of Ireland, the Irish Film Institute, the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade of Ireland, the Irish Youth Foundation, the Ireland Funds of Great Britain and Film London.
