    Default FmN.ie Dublin Film Fringe

    After the astounding success of the the Galway Fringe Fleadh, FilmmmakersNetwork.ie are going to organise the first Dublin Film Fringe Festival. The event will coincide with the official JDIFF 18th Feb - 28th Feb 2010.

    All things like venue and number of events still up in the air at the moment but we should get the ball rolling as soon as possible. Again I think short films should be our focus especially as the JDIFF don't really do shorts in the same way as Cork, Galway, Belfast etc... Though maybe we'll look at screening some other types of films - features?

    So first up you can start getting your shorts ready for sending in. No "Ones That Got Away" requirement this time but I think we'll prioritise "fresh" films. Shorts that have done the rounds in other festivals recently or are getting on a bit will be less likely to be selected. That said maybe a "Golden Oldies" or "Greatest Hits" event could be good.

    Like Galway Fringe Fleadh, the films will be selected on merit and we'll try and squeeze as many of our members films in as possible.

    As it'll be 2010 (the year of the second Space Odyssey) we'll be projecting films in HD - probably from a hard drive so ideally we'd get a HD version of your film in a quicktime/avi format as well as a DVD copy for preview. Full details on submission process including the entry form will be posted up very soon.

    Lastly for now I'd like to have a meeting to get a team together to run this event. The Galway event was great fun so if you'd like to be involved please get in touch. Who's up for a first meeting next week?

    Hope to have a fresh new film for it, but it was shot on DV, will non HD films have a lesser chance?

    EDIT: I'm also interested in helping out, but can people involved submit a film?
    I gots a horror site - underyourbed.org

    Jayo - would love to get calibre involved with this. Don't think the fests like it at all - well hasn'nt got into any! Deserves an audience - they all do. Missed the galway one through sheer lazyness. Well done for getting it together. Sounds like it'll be a success

    People involved can submit films. Except for those on the independent selection committee.
    SD or HD films will be judged equally but if you've shot on HD your film it'll get shown as it should.

    Please make suggestions ideas for the event below. Ideas for venue? Number and type of events? Etc...

    I'm happy to help out, what kind of size venue are we thinking? I imagine it would be a much bigger event than the Galway Fringe though that was full it was maybe about 50 people?

    I guess we could hold a few events centered around somewhere like filmbase. The recent DEAF festival worked well around there with gigs and masterclass type things.

    When we going to meet?

    I'd like to get involved on some level. I live in Kerry though, and have a few things going on around then, but keep me in the loop, as I'd love to help out in any way I can.

    Could this be a job for google wave?
    I haven't used it succesfully yet, but we could give it a go.
    Have a good time, all of the time.

    Say 7:30 pm in Jack Nealons on Capel Street. (Trying to think of a quiet enough pub to meet in.)

    Please post below if you're going to be along for the meeting. Thanks!

    Oops!
    Just remembered that I'm busy Thursday eve. Would Wednesday or Friday be better?

    Also we seem to have a load of people wanting to get involved which is great but it may make meeting in a pub, even a quiet one, difficult. I'll try and sort out alternative meeting place.
