The Place for Irish Independent Film, TV, Radio and Animation

Film Network Ireland (FNI) was established in 2010 as a support structure and to offer opportunities in the independent Film and Tv sector in Ireland. Fni has grown from a handful of friends in a pub (Remember them?) and a couple of optimistic professionals on a Facebook group to one of Ireland’s most exciting and rapidly growing Film Organisations

As a result of our work over the last years, we are delighted to say that our latest series of online classes and events are starting this September 2020 through the new year 2021 and we’re delighted to be funded and supported by Screenskills Ireland through the Stakeholders Fund. We’re in fantastic company with The IFI, Bow Street, and our Colleagues at X- Pollinator (to name a few) all of which are doing incredible work raising the profile of Irish Film and Tv at home and abroad.
