The Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival is one of the most iconic events in Ireland’s cultural calendar. The program has evolved over the years, but each Festival is guaranteed to offer a mouth-watering mix of cinema from around the world, with many screenings attended by filmmakers and stars.
From hidden gems to red-carpet spectaculars attended by directors and stars, every Festival is a celebration of cinematic excellence in all its forms. Our awards recognize outstanding achievements in documentaries, features, and shorts, while the Dublin Film Critics’ Circle Awards distribute accolades from Ireland’s professional film critics and the Audience Award gives Festivalgoers a chance to vote for their favorite features and shorts.
But the Festival’s most prestigious accolade is the Volta. Named after Ireland’s first dedicated cinema, the Voltas is awarded each year to individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the world of film. Previous recipients have included iconic figures such as Al Pacino, Julie Andrews, Ennio Morricone, Daniel Day-Lewis, Claudia Cardinale, Martin Sheen, Kristin Scott Thomas, Brendan Gleeson, Terry Gilliam, and Angela Lansbury.
