General information

Foyle Film Festival

Foyle Film Festival is a flagship project of the Nerve Centre.

From its earliest days, it has pursued an integrated development strategy, linking together the different art forms - film, music, animation, new media - across the interlocking sectors of production, training, education and exhibition. The key elements of Foyle Film Festival are its thematic content, diverse programme strands and special industry events which have been developed to meet the evolving interests of its audience.

The ethos is to offer a range of contemporary, classic, cultural and new cinema to a local and visiting audience and to provide access to cultural cinema to the general cinema going public in this region.

In addition, the Festival targets schools and colleges with a series of curriculum based screenings, workshops and presentations which runs for ten days of the event. A new theme is adopted each year which shapes the Festival forum as well as the main education programme.

The Festival is also committed to showcasing indigenous work and providing opportunities for the local industry to meet and hear leading experts from the film industry in a masterclass and workshop situation. These have included workshops with special effects experts, composers, writers, cinematographers, actors and animators plus film historians and film journalists.
