WELCOME TO THE DUBLIN INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FILM FESTIVAL DICFF!!!

WE ARE THE HOME OF COMEDY FILMS HERE IN THE HEART OF DUBLIN CITY CENTRE, IRELAND.

BASED AT THE BEAUTIFUL GENERATOR INTERNATIONAL HOSTEL ON SMITHFIELD SQUARE, WE GUARANTEE YOU WILL HAVE THE MOST COMFORTABLE & FUN TIME VIEWING YOUR OWN & OTHER FILMMAKERS COMEDIC WORKS OF GENIUS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE!

​DICFF WILL TAKE PLACE ON DEC 2ND - 4TH 2022 AT THE GENERATOR HOSTEL CINEMA

ALONG WITH SOME GREAT FILMS, WE WILL HAVE STAND-UP COMEDIANS FROM DUBLIN PERFORMING EVERY NIGHT AND AN AWARDS CEREMONY ON THE LAST NIGHT DECEMBER 4TH.

DICFF is about celebrating comedy in film.
So often comedy is overlooked in favour of drama. Drama is in fact easier to write, direct and perform.
Comedy is much more difficult and you know if you've succeeded or failed by how many laughs you get!
So, DICFF is here to ensure comedy gets it's due. We want to support our comedic storytellers and celebrate your craft.

    Such a fantastic festival. Certain factors (Gah, covid, go away) meant the festival had to go online at the last minute, but nevertheless the organisers created a fun, creative, informal festival and community. Would recommend highly

  • Riyad Barmania

    This is such a great festival and it is such a shame the pandemic stopped us from having in person screenings.. Despite this the DICFF team were really great at making it feel like a festival as well as being really communicative. Some festivals feel like they just want your money but this one you can tell they really love films and love comedy. Hopefully there will be a live event sometime in the summer because I would love to attend!

    This was by far one of the best festivals I've been involved in! Everyone from the DICFF programming team was super responsive, and I feel like I was able to do some really great networking!!
    Programming in a pandemic isn't easy for anyone, but DICFF definitely did a great job!! 5 out of 5 would recommend!!
