EFSSince 2011, Experimental Film Society has developed a successful bespoke system for distributing our films. It began with organising screenings ourselves, mainly in Ireland. Screenings not only of our own films, but also of work by likeminded filmmakers and organisations from across the globe. This led to several fruitful exchanges and collaborations which have allowed our films to travel to the right audiences, and valuable connections to be made. It is through these connections that our films have become widely known, and invitations to present work at cinemas and festivals worldwide multiply.
EFS is constantly producing new films and has an archive of several hundred films built up over its existence since the year 2000. We are always happy to receive screening invitations. If you would like to book any of our films, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
