“Definitely my number 1 go-to for all things film in Ireland!”Pete Harris
"FNI is a true community online for filmmakers, offering support and guidance and helping to bolster collaborations. It's a great platform, one that should continue to grow."Ian Hunt Duffy
"In a post Filmbase Ireland, these guys are the only show in town. A great organisation with great people. A vital tool in nurturing Irish filmmaking talent."Alan Keane
"FNI is *exactly* what the community of independent film makers needs - truly, it's a resource."Morgan C Jones
"FNI has been an amazing resource for me over the course of my career - from helping to find likeminded cast and crew on student films to directly employing crew, finding locations and getting endless support on funded projects today. It's quite a rare space where you know there is a network of support and suggestions in an industry that can quite often feel very closed-doors hard to crack. I'm excited to see how the space can grow and expand in future!"Claire Gormley
