Subtitle is Ireland's newest film festival and a unique opportunity to catch some of the most popular European films that can't be found at the multiplex and a chance to meet their makers and stars. If you're looking for provocative, funny, accessible and smart European films, then Subtitle is for you. Focusing on films from the Scandinavian, Benelux, Central and Eastern European countries – countries who produce a max of fifty films a year – this festival brings together a feast of films that will make you see cinema in a whole new way. 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 some of the best of these films from across the last decade will be brought to Kilkenny in November. Subtitle is the first festival of its kind in Ireland and what better place to host it than the beautiful city of Kilkenny.
