How it works
  • Each purchase gives you access to the film of your choice during the Docs & Shorts Fest period.
  • You can purchase access to the films at any time, until the end of the Festival (7 November).
    • Ticket numbers are limited, so we encourage you to "reserve" your access by completing your purchase early!
  • ​Each film will be stored in your Library on the IFI website until its release date and time for the Festival (see our Program page for more details). 
  • Once the film is released for the Festival, you will have 72 hours to start watching it. 
    • Once you start watching a film, the clock resets and you will have 48 hours to finish watching it (or re-watch your favourite part(s)!)​

About IFI International

​The IFI International streaming service is a new initiative from 
the Irish Film Institute (IFI), supported by Culture Ireland.
As Ireland’s national cultural institution for film, the IFI provides audiences with access to the finest independent cinema, preserves and promotes Ireland’s moving image heritage through the IFI Irish Film Archive, and provides opportunities for audiences of all ages to learn and critically engage with film.
This new service is a welcome addition to the IFI’s long-running IFI International initiative, a programme which works closely with cultural festivals to bring the best of new and classic Irish cinema to venues around the world.
