Open Call | Visual Artists’ Moving Image at Dingle International Film Festival 2019

Closing date for submissions: 9 November, 12 noon.

Submissions are now invited for single-channel film works from visual artists in Ireland, and from the Dingle peninsula especially, who work in this field.

Dingle International Film Festival in partnership with the MExIndex will exhibit a selection of visual artists’ moving images in a cinema context for their 13th Film Festival in 2019.

This will be a curated programme of visual art films from artists working in Ireland and artists connected to the Dingle peninsula. Creating a cinematic experience for moving image in this context will give a wider audience the opportunity to experience moving image works by visual artists.

There is no entry fee. Selected artists will be notifed by November 30th.
Dingle International Film Festival will take place March 21-24 2019.
The works will be selected by a MExIndex selection panel.

Selected artists will be paid VAI approved fees and will be invited as guests with full festival accreditation and 1 night’s accommodation in Dingle.

A digital cinema package of the selected artist’s work will be made and screened in the Phoenix Cinema during Dingle IFF 2019. The screening will be followed by a moderated Q&A with the attending visual artists. Submitting artists will also be considered for inclusion on MExIndex online database.

Selected artists will need to be able to supply a QUICKTIME compatible file with preference for the higher quality ProRes codecs of their work to the festival. With the assistance of EGG Post Production, the Festival will make a DCP for cinema exhibition with this file.

The Festival is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland and by EGG Post Production and the MExIndex is supported by Kildare County Council.
