Presented by Irish Film London - the team behind the world's largest Irish film festival - Irish Film From Home (IFFH) presents an online collection of Irish film, TV and animation which you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home (or anywhere you want!).
**THIS CALL FOR ENTRIES IS FOR OUR SUMMER 2022 PROGRAMME**
IFFH showcases curated selections of films from the Irish filmmaking community, Irish Diaspora and films concerning Irish subject matter. Each IFFH selection is available to audiences for a limited period.
We use Eventive to provide world-class digital rights management, meaning distributors and filmmakers alike can trust in the security of our platform. Eventive uses invisible watermarking and tracking to ensure your film cannot leave the platform.
Irish Film From Home is a non-competitive screening space. We welcome eligible work of all shapes and sizes, budgets and durations.
Every film submitted via FilmFreeway is considered by the IFL team for inclusion in the Irish Film From Home online programme.
**All submitted films must have an IRISH connection (eg. funding, location, cast or crew)
Please outline the connection in the cover letter and see below for more details.**
We welcome eligible content in the Irish language - or indeed any other language - but would encourage filmmakers to make subtitle tracks available as part of their screening materials where possible, with a view to maximising accessibility for global audiences.
*All entrants must bear in mind that their content will be made temporarily available online for this project. If you would like to request restricting the time of access, please make sure that note is made clear in your cover letter.*
