These films will be premiered at The Lighthouse on Friday 15 October and also live streamed on Facebook and YouTube and shown on a loop at the IAF headquarters (15 Bachelors Walk) during the festival.

Other highlights include a packed programme of indoor and outdoor tours (including boat, bus, bicycle, and running tours) over the weekend and The Big Debate – Living for the City panel on Saturday 16 October. This live event at the Complex Venue Smithfield will also be live streamed for home viewing.

Open House Junior returns with the Little Houses exhibition at the National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History (Collins Barracks), competitions, and self-guided Architreks trails to enable young people and families to explore and engage with local architecture in creative ways.

Most events are free but require booking, and tickets for tours and live events are going fast!
