The objective of Cork Film Festival is to celebrate the art of film in all its forms. The artistic approach is eclectic. Through screenings and associated events, the festival aims to present a wide spectrum of contemporary filmmaking. In particular we support the short film, believing it to be both an art form in its own right. We are committed to developing our education and young audiences sector and our role as an international animator and ambassador of Irish film. In particular, the Festival is interested in interacting and forming partnerships with organizations in joint projects which explore culture, film and society.
Cork Film Festival’s main point of activity is an annual week-long festival of international film. Within that, the Festival provides an eclectic programme. Seminars, talks, exchanges, education and training also happen with this. The Festival also curates and promotes Irish film internationally, and fosters international partnership and exchange.
