The original 1985 programme is slim soft card-bound issue measuring 10cm x 21cm. The bind is stapled and it has 56 numbered pages.

The pdf of the 1985 programme opens with a tribute to Sir Richard Attenborough and a selection of his films were shown that year. The programme also notes that a special feature of the 1985 festival was the number of films made by women; the list includes Broken Mirrors (Marleen Gorris, 1984), Da Capo (Pirjo Honkasalo and Pekka Lehto, 1985), Dust (Marion Hansel, 1985), Fran (Glenda Hambly, 1985), Paperbird (Anja Breien, 1984), A Singular Woman (Gillian Coote, 1985), and Eugene O’Neil: A Glory of Ghosts (Perry Miller Adato, 1985). A seminar on Women and Film was held that October, organised by Pat Murphy, Trish McAdam and Jane Gogan. The close of the programme acknowledges the sponsorship of Ford of Ireland which allowed the festival to mount its tribute to Sir Richard Attenborough that year.
