Organisers of the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival have announced that the 2015 festival in March 2015 will be Jameson’s final year as title sponsor.

Jameson began sponsorship in 2003, which initially ran for four years, but continued to 13 due to its huge success.

The festival has hosted over 500 major guests including Irish stars Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Daniel Day Lewis, Cillian Murphy and international names including Mark Wahlberg, Al Pacino, and Glenn Close.

However, the festival, which is funded by the Arts Council and The Irish Film Board, will be working with a new sponsor in 2016.

“This is an energising time for the organisation, we are activating a new phase in the Festival’s growth and development, which we believe will present fresh and invigorating opportunities for potential new and existing sponsors and partners who share our vision,” said Jackie Ryan, Festival General Manager.

The 13th Jameson Dublin International Film Festival takes place from 19th – 29th March 2015. www.jdiff.com
