access>CINEMA May 2023 Programmers’ Screening Day

Dunamaise cinema - Bringing the Arts to Life in Laois

Join us for our May 2023 Screening Day –  at Dunamaise Arts Centre and ODEON Cinema Portlaoise

Our Screening Days give film programmers a chance to preview a selection of upcoming international and Irish cinema that will be available for future programming. 

These events also give delegates the opportunity to meet with other cinema programmers and industry professionals from across Ireland.

We’ll be returning to Portlaoise for the first time post-COVID and are looking forward to welcoming you.



We want to welcome as many programmers as possible to our Screening Day events, so we have reduced our prices for 2023 (prices include all refreshments and lunch).

We currently offer two types of passes for screening events:

  • Regular Pass: €35
  • Young Person’s Pass (If you are aged 18-30) : €20

Up to three delegates per organisation may register for the event immediately.

Any additional delegates from an organisation that already has three participants registered will be placed on a waiting list.

Registration will close promptly at 5.30pm on Friday April 28th.

If any vacancies remain for the event at that point, waiting list delegates will be offered a place, allocated in order of the date each waiting list delegate initially registered.

If for any reason the cost of attending is not covered by your organisation and you cannot cover the costs yourself, please do get in touch.


access>CINEMA’s screening day is an industry event for programmers, screening organisers, audience developers, education officers or marketeers for cinema, mixed arts venues, film societies and film festivals.
