Now in its 4th year, the Irish Australian Film Festival has enjoyed a meteoric rise in popularity since its humble beginnings in Sydney to 2018 when it will screen in Fremantle, Penrith, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. The Festival screens the latest film releases direct from Ireland. Its mission is to bring contemporary Irish screen culture and entertainment to Australian audiences. Australia and Ireland share strong bonds – almost one third of Australians claim some Irish ancestry – but celebrations of this shared heritage are rare.

In 2018, for the first time in its history, the Irish Film Festival will include a Short Film Competition – encouraging entrants from Australia and overseas and supporting local filmmakers. The Irish Film Festival is fast becoming the largest celebration of contemporary Irish culture in Australia. Be a part of it!
