Evaluation Established in 2003 the festival has become Ireland's main feature film festival and takes place in Ireland's capital city over the course of eleven days each Spring. At the festival’s heart are its audiences. The festival is the host of international guests and also offers a wide range of networking events for filmmakers such as masterclasses, panel discussions and conferences.
The festival is a good platform for distributors to launch their film prior to their national release.

Services The cost of shipping prints must be met by the sender. The Festival will pay for one-way return shipping of prints only (prints can be forwarded to another festival after their screening at DIFF by prior arrangement with the Print Transport Manager only).
