KIFF countywide

We aim to be a county-wide festival as much as limited resources allow. We do this by partnering up with fellow art and culture providers. If you have an idea about how KIFF could work with you to bring cinema to Kerry audiences, please do not hesitate to get in touch. The stronger our network, the more film we can get out there.

An Turas Mór

KIFF are delighted to be partnering with An Turas Mór as part of this years festival. A Fire Show with Druids, funky techno DJ, Fire Dragon and some giant Goths! This show brings its audience on a journey where they won’t know what comes next! From epic showdowns to ridiculous fantasy, from intense fire choreography to the dreamlike worlds of illusion and imagination. An explosion of fire, light, skill and the ridiculous.

wildmind festival, tralee

Wildmind is a nature-based art festival that takes place in Fenit every April. In 2020 KIFF was due to join forces with Wildmind to show a feature film with an environmental message but due to the Covid 19 pandemic, Wildmind had to postpone. We intend to honour this collaboration whenever life allows and forge an on-going and meaningful relationship with one of the biggest-hearted festivals in Ireland.

writer's week, listowel

In 2019 KIFF partnered with Writer’s Week to bring literary films to festival-goers, Paddy Breathnach’s Rosie, based on Roddy’s Doyle’s book, and Ian Power’s Dark Lies The Island, based on Kevin Barry’s writing.

In Listowel, we work with the brilliant Classic Cinema, one of Ireland’s few remaining independently-owned cinemas. We can’t sing their praises highly enough, or bang their drum loudly enough. They are stalwarts, fighting the good fight against an industry geared towards omniplexes and blockbusters.

charlie chaplin festival, waterville

KIFF works with the Charlie Chaplin Comedy Film Festival on an on-going basis. The Festival honours the pioneering spirit of a great filmmaker & advocate for social change. It takes place annually in August in the beautiful village of Waterville on the Ring of Kerry in the South West of Ireland. The festival includes a hugely entertaining range of events, screenings, workshops and Chaplin themed street entertainment and much, much more.
