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 high enough, or bang their drum loud enough. They are stalwarts, fighting the good fight against an industry geared towards omniplexes and blockbusters.
