Irish Film Institute launch online streaming library

IFI@Home allows for cinema lovers to enjoy independent Irish documentaries from the comfort of their own home.

The Great Wall (2014)

The Irish Film Institute have launched an online streaming library.


The institute is Ireland's national cultural institution for film that champions independent, Irish cinema.


In collaboration with The Reel Art Collection, IFI@Home is an on-demand video platform that features a selection of Irish-made documentaries funded by the Arts Council.



The service allows for film-lovers to enjoy independent Irish film, even in the age of COVID-19.


"We are delighted to expand our already far-reaching activities with this new online programme, exclusive to Irish audiences," they said.

"Our handpicked, thematically selected collections will stretch from far flung corners of the world, to rarely seen Irish gems and will include our unique film festival programmes."


The Far Side of Revenge (2014)

IFI@Home, which currently has 20 titles, plan to add new films on an ongoing basis.

Films currently featured include The Great Wall (2014), The Far Side of Revenge (2012) and Phantom Islands (2018).


Each film costs €3.99 to rent, and is available to you to watch as many times as you wish during a 48 hour period.
