Dublin International Film Festival 2021 will now take place entirely online due to ongoing regulations.

We invite you to discover our exciting online programmes of Irish and International films and fantastic events with special guests, including director Steve McQueen (Hunger, Shame, 12 Years a Slave) and other outstanding film talents.

'We had planned a hybrid festival for March 2021, however in deference to the regulations presently in place and in recognition of the difficulties facing so many, the 2021 VMDIFF will now take place entirely online on our festival platform Eventive' said Festival Director Gráinne Humphreys. 'We look forward to the opportunities and new audiences which we hope will attend the festival this March. We are thrilled to welcome Steve McQueen and the many fantastic film talents and films in this year’s festival programme. We look forward to a time in the near future when we will be in a cinema together again.'

This year we will also have an exciting Young People’s Short Programme that will include exciting Irish and International short films from promissing young directors.

Full Online Programme will be announced on February 3rd 2021.

Our Shorts Programmes are now on sale, so you can start planning your 2021 Festival.

The Online Festival Pass is available for €150.
