Dr Roddy Flynn of DCU and Dr Tony Tracy of NUIG will review the film and television output of 2017 considering the continuing presence of Irish talent on the world stage, discussing fresh new work in film and TV drama, and identifying new trends in feature film production.

11.50 Out of Site: Artists’ Moving Image and The Cinema Space
Chaired by aemi’s Alice Butler & Daniel Fitzpatrick, a panel, including artist Jesse Jones, Christine Molloy of the Desperate Optimists, Fionnuala Sweeney (Arts Council) and Anja Mahler (Digital Repository of Ireland) – will argue for the importance of cinema as an exhibition site for artists. The discussion will focus particularly on the Irish context, exploring where – and why – in recent years moving image work by visual artists has at times fallen under the radar of the wider Irish film community.
