Outreach Programme
October – December 2017


The Junior Film Fleadh is back! This year we’re proud to  unveil a new edition that once again celebrates the Future of Film – you! Featuring World Cinema, Documentaries, French, German, Spanish and Irish Language programming, a Story Pitching Competition and much, much more, the Junior Fleadh empowers young people with a passion for cinema.

Like our big sister, the Galway Film Fleadh, the Junior Film Fleadh is a festival for discovering new talent and we’re proud to present a platform for the Future Filmmakers of Ireland to showcase their work. For our 2017 edition we’re also focusing on the Science of Cinema with our exciting new lineup of Workshops and a very exciting screening of X-Men focusing on the Secrets of Superhero Science.

Speaking of Superheroes, each edition of the festival is curated in consultation with a Youth Council, comprised of film fans of different ages, schools and backgrounds, ensuring that the many workshops and screenings that take place during the festival are relevant and of interest to the young cinephiles taking part. These young people, our audiences and our filmmakers represent the future of Irish filmmaking so please join us for four days that celebrate the Future of Film.
