PLASTIK the inaugural international festival of artists’ moving image, the first of its kind in Ireland.
PLASTIK emerges from a collaboration between Critical Forum Dublin (a meeting group for artists involved in the moving image), LUX, The Irish Film Institute (IFI), Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (TBG+S) and Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design + Technology (IADT). It is made possible through the generous support of the Arts Council.

Over the course of 3 weekends throughout February; in venues in Galway, Cork and Dublin, PLASTIK offers a distinct programme that brings international and Irish work together with a focus on contemporary artists’ moving image not previously shown in Ireland.  It will offer the opportunity to view a large number of films with post screening talks with curators/artists, a programme of discursive events and live performances.
