Become a KIFF Sponsor

This year has been our most challenging year to date. So it is with great pride and humility that KIFF can say it’s the first major film festival taking place in Ireland this year. We are delighted to be able to offer  local, national and international businesses sponsorship opportunities.  Ideally, KIFF are looking to nurture mutually beneficial long-term relationships.

This year, Nicola O’ Sullivan from NOS Associates is our head of PR and Sponsorship.  Nicola (MPRII) is an experienced PR and Marketing professional with over 16 years experience. Recently returned to her home county of Kerry, Nicola has a proven track record in creating and implementing successful and bespoke events and campaigns through strategic planning, media relations, creative PR, marketing and social media. Her clients include Brown Thomas, The Press Up Entertainment Group, Little Island Books, Tower Records, and now us!
