Foyle Film Festival’s Light In Motion Competition Open for Entries

Northern Ireland’s only Oscar® affiliated film festival has launched its 2019 Light In Motion (LIM) competition, open to filmmakers and animators across the world. Based in Derry~Londonderry, the Foyle Film Festival competition will remain open for entries until September 23, 2019.

The three competition categories under Light In Motion 2019 are:

·       Best Irish Short

·       Best International Short

·       Best Animation

The category winners will be announced at the closing evening Light in Motion Awards Ceremony, sponsored by City of Derry Crystal, on Sunday 24 November 2019.

Recipients of the LIM Awards qualify for consideration in the Short Film category of the Academy Awards® without needing the standard theatrical run. Foyle Film Festival is also an IMDb Qualifying Festival, granting all eligible film submissions a fast-tracked title page on IMDb.com.

Previous festival winners and competitors who have proceeded to win the Oscar® include: Terry George for The Shore (2012), Martin McDonagh for Six Shooter (2006), Andrea Arnold for Wasp (2004), Adam Elliot for Harvie Krumpet (2003), and Eric Armstrong for Chubbchubbs (2002).

The success continues with 2018 Oscar® nominations for LIM Award finalist The Silent Child directed by Chris Overton and 2018 BAFTA award in Short Animation for LIM Award finalist Poles Apart directed by Paloma Baeza and Ser En Low.

Funded by the Department for Communities through Northern Ireland Screen, by Derry City and Strabane District Council and Tourism NI, Foyle Film Festival delivers a comprehensive programme of documentaries, short films and feature films from all over the world.

Now in its 32nd year, it continues to be a platform for filmmakers, animators and artists to screen their films, network with industry professionals and gain access to the international market.

Call For: Art Submissions Being Accepted for K-FEST 2K19

Visual arts submissions are now being accepted for K-FEST, which takes place in Killorglin, County Kerry, on Friday, May 31, through Sunday, June 2, 2019. A submission form, which requires images of proposed artwork, photo of the artist, biography, and artist statement, among other items, may be found at www.kfest.ie. Submissions costs just €10 and are due at 6 p.m. Friday, March 8, 2019.

In its seventh consecutive year, K-FEST will once again take over the town of Killorglin, exhibiting approximately 100 visual artists across all disciplines, including paint, print, sculpture, performance, textiles, fashion, graphic design, photography, film, and audio-visual. Selected artists show their work in curated, bespoke pop-up galleries throughout the town’s disused commercial and private spaces. Since 2013, K-Fest has housed over 600 visual artists and approximately 3,000 original works of art. With an attendance of more than 10,000 over the June Bank Holiday weekend, K-FEST affords new and emerging artists from Ireland and beyond the ability to showcase their work to a diverse audience, providing opportunities for patronage, partnerships, and community building with fellow artists and local residents.

All submissions selected for participation in K-FEST will automatically be entered to win the Screaming Pope Prize VI, one of Ireland’s most unique arts awards, exclusively organised by artists for artists. The prize is given for a single outstanding work of visual or performing art each year during the festival.

                “In 2018, we saw a performance piece win the Screaming Pope Prize, and we generally had more performance art on exhibit, moving K-FEST into the realm of a truly multi-discipline arts festival. I hope we continue to see as much varied work in 2019, as each work of art elicits a different experience and drives interactions between artists and attendees that really heighten the sense of community and inclusivity during the weekend. We may even see a new gallery or two pop up in 2019, which always gives the festival — and the works on display — a new flavour.”

Details regarding submissions may be found at www.kfest.ie/submissions. For more information on the submission process, contact Neil Browne, Artistic Director, at submissions@kfest.ie. For general information about K-FEST, send inquiries to: info@kfest.ie. #iamkfest #kfest2k19 #killorglinisthecanvas

K-FEST, a dynamic arts festival with an emphasis on emerging artists, uses unoccupied spaces in Killorglin, transforming vacant retail outlets, deserted buildings, and even domestic homes into curated bespoke pop-up galleries and venues. Over the course of the June Bank Holiday weekend, K-FEST hosts more than 60 events in addition to a gallery trail, including live music performances by dozens of bands and musicians, as well as spoken word, drama, comedy, short films, street entertainment, and activities for kids and families, all culminating with the Screaming Pope Prize ceremony, in which the festival awards a single outstanding work of visual art.

First Cut! Youth Film Festival is an annual event dedicated to showcasing new films by young film makers from across Ireland and abroad.

Celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2019, the Festival which will take place over four days from 6-9 March, offers screenings of short films by Ireland’s youths, workshops, and talks by film industry professionals in a friendly atmosphere where young filmmakers can meet and mingle with their peers. There’s also a primary schools animation programme, and YMVC, (the very successful Youth Music Video Competition), mentored by Brendan Canty, the Cork director who had a worldwide hit with his video for Hozier’s Take Me to Church.

The festival is based at the Mall Arts Centre in the seaside town of Youghal, Co. Cork and this year for the first time, screenings and events will also be held in the state-of-the-art Regal cinema, with the most up-to-date and advanced technology available.

Commenting Mary McGrath, Festival Director of First Cut! Youth Film Festival, said, “The Festival aims to inspire creativity and involvement in the arts in young people, and encourage film as a hobby or potential career. It’s about giving young people a voice and a chance to work in a medium they are very comfortable with and clearly enjoy. Many of young people we’ve worked with over the years have gone on to work in the industry. Film is a powerful tool for self-expression. Last year we showcased an incredible selection of short film entries from all over Ireland and Internationally – comedies, music videos, dramas, documentaries and some remarkable animations, it’s amazing to see the talent out there. A free festival like this provides access and opportunity ” 

“ At First Cut! young filmmakers can gather together in a vibrant festival atmosphere for a rare chance to network and showcase their work. They can also take part in events and discussion panels hosted by film experts and receive feedback on their film. It’s a fantastic opportunity for everyone- it can inspire and motivate… not everyone’s going to be an Oscar-winner, but who knows?”

Each screening is accompanied by a panel discussion with young filmmakers where young people can share their experiences and take inspiration from their peers, who have a similar passion for making films.

First Cut! Youth Film Festival receives core funding from the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and Cork County Council and is supported by the business community in Youghal and by Cork Film Centre.
