Young Irish Filmmakers & Animators Network


The Youth Film & Animation Network is a non partisan collective, working with the grassroots network of diverse youth film/animation practitioners, clubs and hubs across the country.  The aim is to provide supports, resources and a voice for the growing youth film and animation sector in Ireland. Working with and for young and emerging filmmakers and animators across Ireland. 

We are researching and reporting on what young people need and want to better cultivate strategic relationships with key stakeholders and funders to build culturally responsive and connected communities of practice. 

If you would like to join the network of practitioners, you can contact us at with any questions.


YIFM will co-create a sustainable National Youth Film and Animation Network (NYFAN) led by youth members in partnership with film/animation practitioners and educators, youth arts and youth work professionals, and creative arts and industry stakeholders.

The NYFAN offers a host of online and in-person workshops and practical in person resources and services to support youth practitioners, their creative directors and adult allies.
