PLASTIK Festival of Artists’ Moving Image | 24 to 26 March 2017

24 to 26 March 2017

In association with the IFI, LUX and Temple Bar Gallery + Studios

Welcome to the second edition of PLASTIK Festival of Artists’ Moving Image – a festival devoted entirely to artists working with the moving image. With films by over 40 artists and filmmakers, and including both contemporary and historical work, PLASTIK will take place at a range of venues in Dublin, bringing 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, developing a platform for the moving image, 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 IFI. In addition to this, a series of discussions, talks and live performances will take place at partner venue Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (TBG+S), with many internationally acclaimed artists and curators in attendance, including James Richards, Erika Balsom, Yuri Pattison, Ann Hirsch and Benjamin Cook (LUX).

PLASTIK emerges from collaborations between LUX, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios and the Irish Film Institute, and is made possible through the generous support of the Arts Council.
