For those joining us, a quick recap: Darklight explores the convergence of art, film, and technology and focuses on work that challenges concepts, visual aesthetic, narrative, access, methods of production, and dialogue, through contemporary film-making techniques.
We support and encourage work that pushes technological boundaries and displays creative excellence. Our mission is to nurture new talent and to create bold new possibilities for the imagination. Which is where you come in. Eligible for entry are feature films, documentary, all CG animation, Flash, 3D etc., experimental video works, music videos, commercial work, motion graphics, game sequences, DV live action shorts and student work.
There are no restrictions on genre, length or number of submitted works.
While you’re at it, have you heard about the Irish Film Board‘s new Virtual Cinema scheme? The results will premiere at this year’s Darklight Festival.
Also… Did we mention we still have copies of our utterly essential Darklight Compendium DVD for sale. It’s only wonderful. Every home should have one. Every home should have two, in fact. Buy them from our website today .
Stay tuned for further details. And have a good one.
Regards Team Darklight
