DARKLIGHT FESTIVAL is Ireland’s premier festival for filmmakers, animators
and artists whose work explores the convergence of art, film and
technology.

Digital filmmaking techniques have become increasingly universal, they
have revolutionised contemporary filmmaking practice and contributed
hugely to the liberation of animation. In response to this the Darklight
programme has become focused on work that challenges; concepts, visual
aesthetic, narrative, access, methods of production and dialogue through
these contemporary filmmaking techniques.

Darklight exhibits work that pushes these boundaries and displays creative
excellence. Our mission is to nurture new talent and to create new
possibilities for the imagination.
