Become a Partner

At Dublin International Film Festival we pride ourselves on building strong partnerships. There are many advantages to partnering with us, and we’re eager to explore opportunities with local and national businesses.

Why become a partner?

Dublin International Film Festival is widely acknowledged as one of the premier film festivals in Europe and a platform for creative expression in Ireland.

Since 2003 the Festival has been a key fixture in the Irish cultural scene, firmly embedded in the city and committed to working with local communities through outreach programmes like Screen8 and Picture House.

Each year we enjoy extensive publicity, both at home and abroad, and we continue to build our profile, strengthening our alliances with the international media to reach as wide an audience as possible.

The Festival enjoys thriving partnerships with a range of companies, from Wells Cargo to Wide Eye Media. Many of our partners have been with us from the beginning and we’ve grown together, drawing on their commercial expertise to help build the Festival brand.

We’re always looking to build new relationships, and partnering with DIFF offers rich rewards. We’ve honed our marketing strategy over nearly 20 years, absorbing best practice from other festivals and benefitting from the commercial expertise of our partners, and we know from our research that the media exposure for our partners is extensive. A partnership with DIFF is a wonderful way to grow your brand.

From partnerships to corporate hospitality we offer a number of ways to join with us. Please see below for details. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
