Great films, special experiences and some fun along the journey – exactly what festivals do best!

We will champion independent productions from Cork, from Ireland and from across the world. Great films continue to be made, films that don’t get to cinemas or to TV. We believe that festivals are ideal places for such productions, that the network of authentic festivals is an important alternative distribution and exhibition circuit.

We know from experience that Cork audiences welcome independent films and we are committed to screening them. Film production, distribution and exhibition systems have been changed radically by digital technologies. We look forward to exploring creative new forms and new ways of presenting films – the cracks between formal genres.
