Supporting film in school curricula and promoting moving image culture for young audiences.

IFI Education has the national remit for film education in Ireland. We aim to provide access to a wide range of film and moving image among diverse audiences, and to facilitate critical and active engagement. 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.

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.

The programme for the 2014 Spring/Summer School’s programme is now live. Choose from the different school levels below.

Outside of school, a monthly Teen Film Club, IFI Explorers extends the regular IFI programme to young people aged 15 to 18.

The monthly Family Programme culminates in the annual IFI Family Festival in July

In keeping with our overall aims of promoting film education and media literacy, we have carried out two significant research projects, Film Focus and the 12-13 Project, which examine the role of film and media in the lives of media literate young people today both in and out of school.Please see our Educational Developments  page for more information.
