As many people know, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council has supported Dublin Animation Film Festival since its inception in 2011. The Arts Department will be launching their new ‘Projections Project’ of new animated short films which will be projected on the wall of the dlr LexIcon this evening! The films will be available for public viewing from 6.30pm-10.30pm. This outdoor screening will only be available this weekend – so be sure to go down and watch the films!
It seems like so long since we had our last festival (and at the same time, not so long at all!!). We are so excited to present our new talent, still flourishing and full of energy despite the Covid pandemic. It seems that creativity is too powerful even for such a strong force.
Many of you have been putting your time to good use and we can’t wait to see what masterpieces present themselves for our latest competition. As always, the competition provides excitement and tension, tears of joy as well as sorrow, but for everyone who takes part it is a special time to show what you can all do and for some, a motivation to bring out the best in you for something you love.
We wish each and every one of you the very best of luck and we hope most of all that you enjoy creating fantastic new worlds, new characters and new messages to share with us.
We will be calling for entries on Monday, 4th October 2021 and close on Thursday, 5th November 2021 at 12pm.
Here’s to showcasing Irish and International animation shorts in December 2021 and having a proper screening of the 2020 films in a REAL venue in 2022!
In the meantime, stay safe and well!
The DAFF Team.
