Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival's Commitment to Greater Diversity:

As part of Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival's mission to employ greater diversity in its programming, we welcome submissions from varied ethnicities and marginalised voices, as well as seeking greater parity and a 50/50 gender-balance. Please make us aware of the diversity in your project when submitting your film.

All films submitted through FilmFreeway are given parity of treatment.

Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival is committed to treating all peoples with respect, dignity and fairness and will take steps to welcome individuals, organisations and communities of all backgrounds including: of any race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, ability, citizenship, creed, sex, sexuality, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, same sex partnership, age, marital status, family status, immigration status, receipt of public assistance, history of mental health issues, health status, political affiliation, learning difference, level of literacy, accent, first language, body type, physical appearance and abilities, stature or socio-economic status.

The Festival is not complacent about its progress to date, and recognises that there is more work to be done to achieve diversity in all of its activities.
