Experimental Film Society (EFS) is an independent, not-for-profit entity specialising in experimental, independent and no/low budget filmmaking. It was founded by Rouzbeh Rashidi in 2000 in Tehran, Iran. Its aim is to produce and promote films by its members.

It is currently based in Dublin, Ireland. Since 2011, it has had over 60 screenings and other events around the world.
