Deadline for the 2008 Darklight Festival, March 14th.

Just a reminder  to all film makers out there. The Darklight Festival’s open submission process is closing this Friday the 14th of March at 5pm.  The festival is accepting all types of work from animation to features, shorts to live actions,  music videos and student work.


Since its inception in 1999, Darklight Festival has brought new and exciting work to Irish audiences through cinema, exhibition and performance and to an international audience via the Internet and Touring Programme initiated in 2002.


Darklight is Ireland’s premier festival for filmmakers, animators and artists whose work explores the convergence of art, film and technology. Digital filmmaking techniques have become increasingly universal, they have revolutionised contemporary filmmaking practice and contributed hugely to the liberation of animation. In response to this the Darklight programme has become focused on work that challenges; concepts, visual aesthetic, narrative, access, methods of production and dialogue through these contemporary filmmaking techniques. Darklight exhibits work that pushes these boundaries and displays creative excellence.
