FEB 20TH – 22ND

PLASTIK is Ireland’s first festival devoted entirely to artists working with the moving image. With films by over 30 artists and filmmakers, including contemporary and historical work, PLASTIK will take place in venues across Galway, Cork and Dublin throughout the month of February, bringing international and Irish work together to form a distinct programme, much of which will be screening in Ireland for the first time.
PLASTIK will create a new platform for considerations of approaches to artists' moving image, highlighting the cross pollination between experimental film and visual art contexts. The cinema context is also a central concept to the festival which will showcase a range of positions and possibilities reflecting, in particular, on the role played by curatorial practice in how we understand and make sense of this ever-expanding field.
A series of discussions, talks, workshops and live performances will take place as part of the festival with partner venue Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (TBG+S), with many internationally acclaimed artists and curators in attendance, including Willhelm Hein, David Gatten, Hannah Sawtell, George Clark (TATE) and Benjamin Cook (LUX)
