Celebrating  LGBTQ+ on Film 
Cork Film Festival is proud to present a bold and dynamic programme of LGBTQ+ films which provide authentic representations and celebrate the diversity of LGBT storytelling, including Matt Smith in the title role, eulogising gay photographic maverick Robert Mapplethorpe, in Mapplethorpe; a contemporary re-telling of American Gothic Folklore in Lizzie; and a compelling and harrowing tale of disenfranchised queer youth in Night Comes On.

In Colette, Keira Knightley stars as the eponymous twentieth-century French novelist who defies her husband and society to influence literature and sexual expression for generations to come; Sorry Angel (Plaire, aimer et courir vite) is a life-affirming love story about a man coming terms with his HIV status who embarks on an unlikely love affair; whilst Girl depicts a sensitive and fearless exploration of gender issues.

Join the filmmakers for a Q&A following The Gospel of Eureka, a gloriously camp and colourful delight in small town America.

Cork in Focus: Cork on Camera and Best of Cork

Cork Film Festival is the first and largest film festival in Ireland, so it’s no surprise that Corkonians themselves are not only voracious cinephiles but avid filmmakers!

This year we welcome back the IFI Local films for Local People: Cork On Camera, with an eclectic programme of short films set in Cork City and County dating from 1900 to the 1960s. Featuring Oscar®-nominated shorts, newsreels, and silent film accompanied by pianist Morgan Cooke, Cork on Camera promises a treat for film and history enthusiasts alike.

Looking to the present day, the 63rd Cork Film Festival Shorts Programme concludes with Best of Cork, a collection of 7 shorts from local filmmakers, supported by Red FM. These films offer a snapshot of the life of the city and its inhabitants - the topics that inspire us and unite us. Carefully selected from an ever-growing number of submissions, this collection showcases the very best of homegrown talent.
