Catalyst Film Festival 2020

20th-21st March

Belltable, Limerick, Ireland


Catalyst Film Festival will present a film programme that prioritizes stories and storytellers currently underrepresented on screen and behind the camera.We want to create a more inclusive industry and films screened here will promote gender equality, diversity and inclusion whether in content, key creative roles or crew.

There will also be panel discussions, workshops and Q&As where topical issues of the day will be enthusiastically debated with filmmakers, guest speakers, industry personnel and audience members. We believe that equality is key to enriching filmmaking and audiences and it is core to this festival.
