Chair of KIFF, Grace O’Donnell said: “The Board and team of KIFF are looking forward to providing an even bigger and better festival in 2021 and we hope to be able to present a physical element to the festival this year along with our developed online platform. We look forward to engaging with our valued audiences and local partners and we look forward to welcoming and supporting emerging talent and industry professionals this year and beyond”.

In celebration of a brand-new year and as part of the festivals overall strategic environmental policy, KIFF recently joined forces with Tralee Rotary Club to plant 4000 trees in Castlegregory Nature Park.

The trees have been purchased from the Trees on the Land, a cross-border initiative working to establish young native trees across the 32 counties of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. KIFF Board Member, Ailbhe Keogan said: “On the environmental front, KIFF felt that it is important to give back in a meaningful way and to make a practical difference, even if on a small scale. We developed this project to showcase KIFF’s awareness and commitment to the promotion of a greener environment.”

Michael Kelly of the Castlegregory Community Council said: “This nature park will be enjoyed by locals and tourists alike, but more than that, it will be home to a wide variety of plants and animals that are increasingly at risk in Ireland.”
