Dlr Arts Office – Film 2012
dlr Arts Office places participation and learning at its core and endeavours to create opportunities for the public to engage with the arts as creators, participants and spectators. With this in mind we are currently looking for a film facilitator to engage with local groups. The aim of this project is to explore film as an art form and to build an audience for cultural cinema within the County, specifically looking towards the opening of the Central Library and Cultural Centre in Moran Park in 2014. This project will create a cultural film/art house programme for the general public with local groups that will be screened in the Cinemobile in 4 separate locations across the County this coming November 2012. This programme is funded by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and supported by the Arts Council.
The central theme of this project is film as an art form and a key aim is to offer opportunities for the public to engage with film in a creative way. Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown County Council is inviting proposals from experienced film facilitators to engage with local groups. We are open to creative ways to engage the public with film as an art form and to programme screenings for the Cinemobile, which will be coming to Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County in November 2012.
The Cinemobile will be sited at four different areas on the following dates
Sat 3rd, Sun 4th, Sat 10th and Sun 11th November 2012.
Further information regarding the Cinemobile can be accessed from: www.cinemobile.ie
dlr Arts Office envisages that a maximum of 3 film screenings will be accommodated in each site, 12 films in total*. Realistically we envisage that the film facilitator will engage with a maximum of 3 groups. Typically we expect a spread of interest for the public, for example family, older people and general interest. However it is a key aim of this project that the groups will determine these areas of interest with the facilitator, all underpinning the central theme of engaging the public with film as an art form. dlr Arts Office will assist with contacting groups. In addition the successful applicant will be expected to be available for the first screening on Sat 3rd November and to liaise with the film distributors and other appropriate agencies. Budgets do not need to include the cost of film screenings or promotional material. However it should be noted that approximately 25-30 contact hours is envisaged for this project. In addition the film facilitator will be expected to engage with the evaluation of this project.
*dlr Arts Office will programme one of the sites with young people from the Canvas Youth Film Club based at the Graistore, dlr’s Youth Arts Facility.
