CIT to present ART(IST)FILM at INDIECORK Festival

Published on: Friday, 06 July 2018

7TH – 14TH OCTOBER 2018

CIT is excited to announce “art(ist)FILM” - a new partnership with IndieCork Festival to present moving image works by student and graduate artists as part of the IndieCork Festival in October 2018. CIT Arts Office, CIT Crawford College of Art & Design, and CIT Cork School of Music will collaborate with the IndieCork Festival team to develop this initiative, and look forward to showcasing innovative, original work.

 

IndieCork Festival has become synonymous with the presentation of experimental and interdisciplinary film, music, and visual art. CIT Crawford College of Art & Design encourages individual expression using the moving image. This is an area of artistic production that has grown enormously, both internationally and locally, over the past two decades. CIT Cork School of Music has a formidable history of music education and performance at the highest level, and is establishing a strong reputation in the area of music in film.

This new partnership will offer a platform for screenings and discussion in a variety of contexts and venues in Cork. By bringing together students, graduates, experienced professionals, and a supportive audience, Cork can foster the artistic and professional development of a new generation working with the moving image.

 

art(ist)FILM 2018 will focus on the relationships between artists and film, and will feature a programme of works by CIT students and graduates selected through an Open Call, contextualised by guest lectures and panel discussions.

 

Details of the Open Call will be announced shortly. For further details, contact: Pádraig Trehy, CIT Crawford College of Art & Design – padraig.trehy@cit.ie
