Foyle Film Festival 2017

Fri 17 Nov 10:00am to Sun 26 Nov 8:00pm

The Foyle Film Festival comes back in 2017 to celebrate its 30th anniversary, to mark the special milestone we're expanding our programme to ten days. The festival is one of only a handful of International festivals with Oscar® affiliation and BAFTA recognition. Foyle Film Festival offers filmmakers, animators and artists a unique platform to screen their films, network with industry professionals and gain access to the international market.

Foyle Film Festival is delighted to welcome acclaimed filmmaker Jim Sheridan to deliver this year’s 'Shorts to Features' Keynote talk on his long and distinguished career.

We have some special dementia friendly screenings this year which will take place in Brunswick Moviebowl.

The festival, organised by the Nerve Centre, and funded and supported by Northern Ireland Screen and Derry City Council, delivers a comprehensive programme of documentaries, short films and feature films from all over the world, a full programme of educational events for schools, youth, and adults and an impressive array of industry networking events and panel discussions.
