The IFTA now holds separate ceremonies for the IFTA Film & Drama Awards and IFTA Gala Television Awards;[3] Before 2015, they were one ceremony, known as the Irish Film & Television Awards.[4] IFTA also holds the John Ford Ireland Symposium each June and over 30 networking and learning events throughout the year.[3]

IFTA also established John Ford Ireland in 2011, in association with the estate of American director John Ford and the Department of Culture, Heritage, and the Gaeltacht.[2]
