Volvo Car Ireland is the Official Car Partner for the Dublin International Film Festival (DIFF) 2024.

Volvo Car Ireland has been announced as the Official Car Partner for the Dublin International Film Festival (DIFF) 2024, continuing its cooperation for the fourth year. The festival, a highlight of Ireland's cultural calendar, will take place from February 22 to March 2, showcasing a diverse range of films and hosting industry events to promote film culture in Dublin.

The DIFF is known for its wide selection of international cinema and has become a key event for film enthusiasts and industry professionals. The festival also emphasises sustainability, a principle that aligns with Volvo's provision of an all-electric fleet for the event. This year, the fleet will include the Volvo XC40 Recharge and C40 Recharge models, facilitating emission-free transportation for festival participants across Dublin.

Volvo to be fully electric by 2030

This initiative reflects Volvo's commitment to environmental responsibility and its goal to become a fully electric car maker by 2030. The company aims to reduce its carbon footprint and achieve climate neutrality by 2040. By supplying electric vehicles for the DIFF, Volvo supports the festival's green objectives while promoting sustainable energy use in transportation.

The partnership between Volvo Car Ireland and the DIFF underscores a mutual interest in supporting community engagement and cultural events. The provision of electric vehicles for the festival is part of a broader effort to minimise the environmental impact of public events and promote sustainable practices.

The Dublin International Film Festival has a long history of presenting contemporary and classic cinema from around the world, making it a significant event for Ireland's film community. Over the years, the festival has screened more than 1,600 international films from over 52 countries and hosted numerous high-profile guests.

Volvo's involvement in the DIFF is an extension of its commitment to its core values, including safety, innovation and sustainability, providing a platform for highlighting electric mobility and supporting the arts.
