These folks from the Filmmakers Network are organizing screenings on the 6th of March. The shorts program includes Aaron O'Reilly's 'Circus Porcelina' and Emmet Vincent's 'Before I Die', which have both screened at New Volta. If you're free on Saturday it would be great to see them supported at this event.
Following on from the success of the Galway Fringe Fleadh June 2009, FilmmakersNetwork.ie presents Dublin’s first Film Fringe Festival on 6th March 2010, the FilmmakersNetwork.ie Dublin Film Fringe.
The Dublin Film Fringe festival aims to focus on exciting new shorts from Irish filmmakers as well as showcasing classic or unseen shorts from established directors. The festival will take place in sites across the city and we aim to host talks by directors, as well films screened in unusual and diverse locations.
“The Dublin Film Fringe is an opportunity for audiences in the capital to see some of the best shorts from emerging Irish filmmakers,” says Jason Butler from FilmmakersNetwork.ie. “The theme of our mini-festival is ‘D.I.Y.’ We’ll showcase films and filmmakers that display the invention, ingenuity and raw energy required when working independently.”
FilmmakersNetwork.ie is an Irish networking space for people who want to make films. For everyone from novices to busy professionals, it’s a place to make contacts, share opinions, discuss movies, contribute ideas, discover talent, build creative relationships and make films. It’s a not-for-profit initiative and as Ireland’s largest filmmaking community currently boasts over 1500 active members.
