An exciting opportunity is being offered to CIT students and graduate artists.

The college has announced its partnership with the IndieCork Festival named ‘art(ist)FILM’ which, for the first time, will provide students and graduates with a platform to present their moving image works as part of the festival in 2018.

The CIT Crawford College of Art and Design and CIT Cork School of Music will collaborate with the IndieCork Festival team to develop the initiative which will showcase innovative and original work from 7-14 October.

The ever-growing IndieCork Festival has become synonymous with the presentation of experimental and interdisciplinary film, music, and visual art which might not have been given the opportunity to be shown elsewhere.

CIT Crawford College of Art & Design has made a point of encouraging individual expression using the moving image.

Úna Feely of IndieCork Festival commented: “We’re proud to be associated with this exciting new showcase of film art and moving image. We have long connections with the students and faculty of CIT and admire their commitment to the moving image and their interdisciplinary approach to film and music education. This is an exciting addition to our adventures in the moving image and we look forward to it developing in the coming years.”

‘art(ist)FILM’ 2018 will mostly 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.

The IndieCork Festival will be shown in Cork’s Gate cinema on North Main Street and will release a full program closer to the starting date.
