Dublin Independent Film Festival

Dublin Independent Film Festival brings groundbreaking shorts and features of fresh artists and filmmakers. Loyal to our vision to create a safe place open to a diverse audience with people of all backgrounds, DIFF takes place in local venues that live up to the city’s vibe and cultural history.

Our screening programme spans a wide range showcasing the creations of upcoming talents and emerging artists passionate about the art of cinema.

Dublin Independent Film Festival aims to become a cultural hub where the artists and audience can interact and exchange ideas.

The Dublin Independent Film Festival is organised by HFP, a pioneer organisation that runs Film Festivals and other events showcasing and championing ideas of diversity. Through our global series of film Festivals that spread over 13 countries, we open the path to voices with a compelling story to share. Our main mission is to honour independent cinema and establish a network of artists eager to join forces and spread their work across all nations. HF runs 25 film Festivals worldwide.
