Supporting film in school curricula and promoting moving image culture for young audiences.
IFI Education has the national remit for film education in Ireland. With a bi-annual programme of film screenings, workshops, resources, teacher training and related events, we engage with over 15,000 children and young people around the country throughout the school year.

Choose from our selection of film Study Guides covering English, French, German, TY, Junior Cycle, Gearrscannáin and Primary. Do you use our study guides? Please take 5 minutes to complete this survey of our new guide to Intouchables and give us your feedback. Names will be entered into a draw for a pair of complimentary tickets to an IFI screening.
Outside of school, a monthly Teen Film Club, IFI Explorers extends the regular IFI programme to young people aged 15 to 18.
We are also delighted to announce our new Gearrscannáin project in association with the Irish Film Board/Bord Scannán na hÉireann
As an overall ambition, IFI Education endeavours to provide access to a wide range of film and moving image among diverse audiences, and to facilitate critical and active engagement. To this end, we work with teachers and students, contribute to education policy and development, and promote the case for media literacy in national and international education debate.
We have carried out two significant research projects, Film Focus and the 12-13 Project, both of which examine the role of film and media in the lives of media literate young people today both in and out of school.
