Information Clinics on the Arts Council’s film awards 2019

Through its film awards, the Arts Council is interested in creating an environment in which film artists have the freedom to make work of an experimental and/or non-narrative nature and are given opportunities to make highly creative authored work for cinema exhibition.

In advance of upcoming deadlines for Reel Art, Authored Works and the Film Project award, the Arts Council, in association with AEMI, will hold information clinics in Pálás Cinema, Galway and Goethe-Institut, Dublin.
