The Silent Child, which screened at the 2017 festival, won the short narrative film category at the 2018 Oscar® ceremony.

 In 2019, two of the five films nominated at the Academy Awards screened at the 2018 festival, Mother and Detainment. KIFF 2019 also saw the screening of Oscar® nominee Corpus Christi and SXSW winner The Peanut Butter Falcon.

Emerging filmmakers are at the core of the Kerry International Film Festival programme, with the short film competition geared towards showcasing their work and bringing it to a wider audience both at home and throughout a growing network of partner festivals across the globe. KIFF continues its annual collaboration with Kerry County Council, The Arts Council and KETB in screening the successful Kerry Film Bursary winner.

2020 will also see the continuation of the successful scriptwriting strand and reopening of the Best Score category.

Filmmakers will have the chance for their work to be seen by a prestigious panel of adjudicators, which has in recent years included Academy Award Nominated Fodhla Cronin O'Reilly, Academy Award winner Benjamin Cleary, Sundance Grand Jury prize winner, Jim Cummings, Directors Lenny Abrahamson and Paul Greengrass and Producer Finola Dwyer.
