15th Anniversary Year
The IFTA Film & Drama Awards take place on Thursday 15th February (immediately prior to EFM at Berlin, and the BAFTA Film Awards), and will be broadcast primetime on RTÉ One. 2018 marks the big 15th Anniversary Year for the annual Awards. The positioning of the Awards into the international Awards season in February, is part of the Academy’s new phase of development for the industry which also includes the re-positioning of the IFTA Gala Television Awards into April on the annual Calendar of events. This new move will see IFTA working very closely with BAFTA across their respective Awards ceremonies which will take place on the same week.
