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!).


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.*



*Please make special note of our eligibility criteria.*

The IFFH programme is comprised of submitted films selected exclusively from FilmFreeway.

IFL accepts films in English or Irish language. Films in other languages must be sub-titled in English.

IFL does not require any premiere status but notes that this may come into consideration during the selection process.

IFL’s main objective is to present films stemming from Ireland and the Irish Diaspora, but will also accept submissions from non-Irish filmmakers whose films are about Ireland or Irish people.

Any Irish language entries MUST provide English subtitles.
The primary contact completing the submission process must be authorised to submit the film for consideration including permission from a distributor or sales agent representing the film and must have obtained necessary permissions for the inclusion of copyrighted music and/or images within the films.

    Thanks so much Pat! We love films like yours which show a unique perspective. They've had a great reception both online and in Trafalgar Square earlier this year. Look forward to seeing more of your great work!
