If you want something to do on a week night that costs nothing, or if your friends don’t appreciate your comments when watching a film, or if you have a film/documentary/viral that is gathering dust in your attic then why not pop into Videogram Limerick on Thomas Street in Limerick City as they just might have the film society for you.
In an effort to wake up people in the Mid-West to the wonderful world of film, Videogram Limerick was formed in October 2010. It was the brainchild of two artists, Alan O’Keeffe and Joanna Hopkins. They wanted to not only share their love of film by showcasing Irish and international film talent but also to engage the audience.
Videogram achieves the above by screening films submitted to them, followed by a discussion between the filmmakers and the audience. This all takes place in The Project Space, Occupy Space, Thomas Street in the heart of Limerick City. Joanna Hopkins of Videogram was overwhelmed by the reaction to their first night last November ‘the response from filmmakers and the public has been super duper thus far’.
It’s not just about the screenings however, they are also looking for submissions from student, amateur and professional filmmakers in Ireland or abroad. If you want to submit you’ll need to send a short CV, bio and examples of your work to the email address below.
As it’s not-for-profit society there is no entry charge, so it is a great way to spend an evening in these recessionary times, Why not bop along to the next screening at Videogram Limerick.
For further information about the next screening or if you would like to submit check out Facebook, Film Ireland’s webpage, Visual Artists Ireland E-bulletin or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
