PLASTIK Festival of Artists’ Moving Image is a festival devoted entirely to artists working with the moving image. Taking place at a range of venues in Dublin, PLASTIK brings international and Irish work together to form a distinct programme, much of which will be screening in Ireland for the first time.
PLASTIK aims to represent the breadth and scope of innovative and experimental work being produced in this ever expanding field of practice, with a focus on the cinema as exhibition space. The privilege of a festival of this nature allows an intensity of work, creating uneasy combinations, and challenging perspectives through its ability to affect.
All festival screenings will take place at the Irish Film Institute. In addition to this, a series of discussions, talks and live performances will take place at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (TBG+S), with many internationally acclaimed artists and curators in attendance, including James Richards, Erika Balsom, Yuri Pattison, Ann Hirsch, Sasha Litvintseva, Mark Toscano, James Kienitz Wilkins and Benjamin Cook (LUX).
