PLAY Poland - Irish/Polish Film Project

By Mosaic Arts Movement


The Irish Polish Film Project – is a two day Irish/Polish Film Festival that will take place in Filmbase, Dublin in July 2011. It is part of PLAY Poland – a unique Polish Film Festival which will run throughout the UK and Ireland over a five month period.

With the Irish-Polish Film Project we offer a great platform for professional and amateur filmmakers, animators and film course students to come together and explore Irish and Polish film. This venture aims to incorporate Polish cinematography into the Irish film environment through a blend of Irish and Polish productions, workshops and educational talks.

We will host indoor events that will consist of a number of short films, both Irish and Polish, followed by a Polish feature-length film. Through programmed screenings, workshops, music events, exhibitions and educational talks, we will also aim to promote Polish art and culture, enhance the works of emerging filmmakers, encourage cross-cultural collaborative projects and offer networking opportunities to those working in and interested in the sector. The discussion panels will involve Polish and Irish speakers including Dan Spencer (Pegbar), Agnieszka Grandowicz (Animators.ie) and Dave Byrne (Director of Underground Cinema).

Who are we?

Mosaic Arts Movement are a collective of young and creative Polish individuals who wish to motivate Irish Intercultural relations. We are organising this festival in collaboration with Open Air Cinema, Ballyfermot College of Further Education Irish Animation School, the Underground Cinema and Crewger, Pegbar (both networking organisations in the film/animation sector). The event has been honoured with the patronage of Huston School of Film in Galway as well as of Aidan Hickey and Steve Woods, renowned figures of the Irish animation industry.

We’d like to thank all of our backers for supporting this project.

Happy Days !!

Dear All, We are SO happy that we have hit our FUNDit target. All this was possible with your help. We are over the moon you supported us and gave us a hand during that crowd-funding campaign. Thanks to your good heart and positively-twisted nature, we can work freely on sorting out all bits and pieces behind the festival. We've received some great works with potential festival mascots so we cannot wait to select our favourite. New shorts are just popping into our baskets, which is making our programme blooming like spring flowers :) Hopefully, the same thing will happen to our discussion panels with the arrival of new guests such as Natalia Kostrzewa (The Looking Glass, Marianna). Visit our web and FB profile to see what we are up to and how our fest preparations are going. So stay tuned :) We will soon visit you with our polished and cherished rewards. We cannot wait :D Hugs & movie treats, Mosaic Arts Movement

The last week of PLAY Poland on FUNDit

Guys, the time is flying. We are entering the last week of our FUNDit campaing. Thanks to you, we have managed to raise 870 euro. We cannot wait to spread our love and gratitude with our rewards. But we need to hit 1400 euro to do so. So if you can encourage some loving-movie-art-culture & basically positively-twisted folks to give us a hand, it would be AWESOME :) You know the drill, so you can guide anyone :) So GO TEAM! Hugs, Mosaic Arts Movement
