The Irish Film Institute in Temple Bar throws open its doors to the public once again this June for an extensive programme of free events.

This year’s IFI Open Day programme is even more jam-packed than ever with more films, more special events and one amazing competition. Whether this is your first trip to the IFI or you are a regular visitor, the IFI looks forward to welcoming you!

There will be 15 totally FREE films including Back to the Future, Jaws and Monty Python’s Life Of Brian, three SNEAK PREVIEWS as well as behind-the-scenes tours, membership discounts, children’s workshops and a chance to win flights to New York with Aer Lingus

Tickets for Open Day films are free and will only be distributed in person on the day itself from 11am, limited to a maximum of four tickets per person. Get there early as they will be snapped up quickly!

The IFI will also be offering one-day-only discounts on memberships, which supports the IFI’s vital work as the home of film in Ireland as well as giving you free film tickets, free screenings, discounts in the IFI Café Bar and IFI Film Shop as well as double Loyalty Points towards more free tickets!

This year there is also a chance to meet the preservation and access team and take a tour to explore the vaults of IFI Irish Film Archive, learning how they preserve priceless elements of Ireland’s moving image heritage. Tours of the IFI’s working projection booth will also be on offer. These tours are free but once again, places are limited and should be pre-booked by calling Sharon Corrigan on 01 6795744 or emailing her.

The IFI Open Day takes place on Saturday, 20th June starting at 11am and running until late.
