Presented by The Irish Film Institute
The Irish Film Institute presents a programme of films made in and about Leitrim from the early days of cinema in Ireland to more recent times. The Local Films for Local People project brings films preserved in the IFI Irish Film Archive back to the communities in which they were made.
Leitrim on Film  presents a series of films documenting life, leisure and livelihoods in  Leitrim towns and villages from the 1930s to 1970s in a programme which will appeal to all interested in the culture and history of the county.

The programme includes newsreel of Eamon DeValera’s campaign in Drumshambo in the 1930s; musical interludes at An Tostal (1953) ; waterworks in Aughnasheelin  (1968) ; and tourist films from the 1970s.

The Irish Film institute is supported by the Arts Council.
