Taking place this weekend, 8th-10th Oct in and around Smithfield, Dublin is the annual Darklight Festival (celebrating its 10th birthday this year!). The Darklight Festival celebrates and displays the creative work of local & world renowned filmmakers, animators and artists.
I’ve had a quick look through the site and it looks like there is a jam packed schedule for the weekend.
My pick of the bunch are:
- Synth Eastwood Present: Animators Anonymous – taking place on Friday, Synth Eastwood host an open discussion with various animators about their work and animation in Ireland today. Guests include Fergal Brennan, D.A.D.D.Y, Lovely Productions & Chris Judge.
- Mark Romanek In Conversation – On Saturday festival guest of honour, Mark Romanek will talk through life and his career, followed by a screening of some of his music videos.
There’s plenty more on, including some fun looking workshops – so head on over to the site and check out the full programme for yourself here.
