Since Marketa Dowling, Programme Manager of the Belltable, came on board in April 2016 cultural cinema has been screened weekly and has proved a great success with cinema goers. This new partnership is hugely significant as it benefits from the expertise, passion and access that the IFI has to offer.  Marketa noted “We are really excited about our partnership with the Irish Film Institute. Our audiences will benefit hugely from IFI’s expertise and experience of programming top quality arthouse cinema. 

We are proud to be presenting the weekly [email protected] programme, bringing the best in cultural cinema into the Mid-West.”

Ross Keane, Director of the IFI stated: “We’re delighted to be embarking on a new partnership with the Belltable which will bring the best of IFI programmes and films to new audiences in Limerick. IFI National tours programmes around the country throughout the year, but we’re excited to now have a permanent hub at Belltable, offering weekly IFI programming at this magnificent venue.”
