Silk Road Film Festival

The Silk Road International Film Festival returns to Dublin, Ireland for its seventh edition between the 5th & 9th of February screening an exclusive array of international films showcasing a rich diversity of features, documentaries, shorts & student films. The festival is taking place in February this year to mark the Chinese New Year.

SRIFF provides a framework on how intercultural understanding & collaboration can be forged even outside the realm of cinema. SRIFF aims to narrow distances between people & cultures, to break boundaries & foster cross-cultural collaboration & social change. SRIFF is also a place to learn. International guests, filmmakers, artists, and organizers alike share in the highly mutual act of learning about people, traditions & ideas that, seemingly distant, become quite familiar.
