The 2020 Richard Harris International Film Festival will be a 7-day event taking place in Limerick leading up to and during the Bank Holiday weekend 20 – 26 October 2020.  The festival culminates in the largest Awards Show on the Irish film festival circuit with a black-tie red carpet gala. 

The IFTA Affiliated International Film Festival, one of Ireland’s fastest-growing Film Festivals with a unique programming perspective and Interactive Media Technology Summit is delighted to announce submission’s for our 2020 Festival will open on February 1st.

Chair of the festival Rob Gill said “The highlight of the festival each year is our Awards show. It is always gratifying to see our awards winners and alumni go on to great success.  In 2018, Detainment was a multi-award winner at the festival and of course, went on to be nominated for an Academy Award. Last year’s best feature winner Bellingcat: Truth in a Post-Truth World won an international Emmy.”
