Jump into Kilkenomics now and engage with as many shows as possible, equip yourself with the information and insight we hope can help us all make smart choices for our futures - inform and entertain yourselves.
Subtitle European Film Festival

If you’re looking for provocative, funny, accessible and smart European films, then SUBTITLE is for you.
Subtitled films are all serious, difficult and end unhappily, right? Wrong! There’s a world of filmmakers across Europe creating films that have delighted audiences across the world with their comedy, tragedy, intelligence and beauty. And we’re bringing some of the best of these films together from across the last decade to Kilkenny in November. So join us this November. Come and see the films, meet the makers and admire the talent!
