About Foyle Film Festival

21st Foyle Film Festival Friday 21-Saturday 29 November 2008
The Foyle Film Festival is the flagship project of the multi media Nerve Centre. The key elements are its diverse programme strands and special industry events, developed to meet the evolving interests of its audience. The ethos is to offer a range of contemporary, classic, cultural and new cinema to a local and visiting audience. The education programme targets schools and colleges with a series of curriculum based feature films, workshops, and presentations. The Festival is also committed to showcasing indigenous work and providing opportunities for local filmmakers to engage with leading experts from the film industry in a masterclass and workshop situation.
