IFI & aemi Projections

Click here for a list of all previous aemi events. 

Founded in 2016 by Daniel Fitzpatrick and Alice Butler, aemi is an agency and platform for the support and exhibition of artists’ & experimental moving image practices. A key objective of this organisation is to develop audiences for artists’ moving image in Ireland through regular, curated programmes of both Irish and international work with the intention of contributing to and developing critical discourse around practices in this area.

aemi is particularly interested in reclaiming the cinema as a site for the exhibition of works that challenge, expand, and interrogate a wider realm of possibility in terms of what cinema can be and do. Through an ongoing selection of carefully curated programmes ‘aemi Projections’ at IFI, aemi will focus on works, both contemporary and historical, which remind us that cinema can be a space for truly diverse points of view, for warped perspectives and for spatiotemporal journeys utterly unlike those we have become accustomed to.

In October 2018, aemi will present a programme of works that looks at the role of the artist/filmmaker as researcher. Featuring the Irish premiere of Luke Fowler’s portrait of experimental composer Martin Bartlett as well as one of Agnès Varda’s greatest achievements, Ulysse (1982), the films included suggest ways in which cinema has been repurposed to allow for other, more essayistic, modes of enquiry.

Process | Event continues with a series of events at Project Arts Centre focused on work by four Irish artists: Jenny Brady, Sarah Browne, Tadhg O’Sullivan, and Dennis McNulty. For full details of the event and booking, please click here: https://ifi.ie/film/ifi-aemi-process-event/
