Irish Design 2015 is delighted to sponsor a short film and animation award at this year’s Irish Film Festa in Rome. The festival runs from 26–29 March and the ID2015 award will be presented by film director Lenny Abrahamson on Saturday 28 March.
The Irish Film Festa is an annual festival that takes place at the Casa del Cinema, Villa Borghese in Rome to celebrate and promote the Irish film industry in Italy. Established in 2007, the festival combines premieres of new Irish films with screenings of restored and re-discovered classics of Irish cinema. Entry is free and films are presented in the original language with Italian subtitles. The programme also includes a series of talks and events that include special guest appearances by leading Irish directors, actors, writers and producers.
The festival is produced by IrishFilmFesta Archimedia in collaboration with the Irish Film Institute and with the support of Culture Ireland, the Irish Film Board, Tourism Ireland, the Embassy of Ireland in Italy and the Province of Rome.
