The Irish Polish Film Project – is a two day Irish/Polish Film Festival that will take place in Filmbase, Dublin in July 2011. It is part of PLAY Poland – a unique Polish Film Festival which will run throughout the UK and Ireland over a five month period.
With the Irish-Polish Film Project we offer a great platform for professional and amateur filmmakers, animators and film course students to come together and explore Irish and Polish film. This venture aims to incorporate Polish cinematography into the Irish film environment through a blend of Irish and Polish productions, workshops and educational talks.
We will host indoor events that will consist of a number of short films, both Irish and Polish, followed by a Polish feature-length film. Through programmed screenings, workshops, music events, exhibitions and educational talks, we will also aim to promote Polish art and culture, enhance the works of emerging filmmakers, encourage cross-cultural collaborative projects and offer networking opportunities to those working in and interested in the sector. The discussion panels will involve Polish and Irish speakers including Dan Spencer (Pegbar), Agnieszka Grandowicz (Animators.ie) and Dave Byrne (Director of Underground Cinema).
Who are we?
