  • Experimental Film Society - Video On Demand

    By on

    Over the past five years, four prolific underground filmmakers have emerged to define a new and distinctive visionary strain of filmmaking in Ireland. Under the banner of Experimental Film Society, Rouzbeh Rashidi, Dean Kavanagh, Michael Higgins and Maximilian Le Cain have forged a defiantly personal and marginal cinema that is fast becoming recognized as "an important new direction" (Donal Foreman, Estudios Irlandeses) in Irish film. Sharing an exploratory approach to filmmaking where films emerge from the interplay of sound, image and atmosphere rather than traditional storytelling techniques, their work has been singled out for its radical formal qualities and poetic sensibility. Made with low or, most often, no budgets, this is filmmaking at its most challenging and independent.  

    Now, for the first time, their archive of forty-three feature and medium length films is available on VOD to stream or download. Explore this unique catalogue of work here (http://goo.gl/4kISRc).

  • Microscope Expands!

    By on

    Microscope is moving to a new 2,000sf semi-raw space, and expanding our Weekly Events Series. This will require a lot of work as well as substantial upgrades of our equipment. Microscope Gallery does essentially two things at once: we operate as a gallery with a regular schedule of exhibitions open five days a week, and alongside we feature a weekly series of events. To date, we have presented 34 art exhibitions and more than 250 events by artists working primarily with film, video, sound, digital art and performance in our current four-hundred-twenty square foot space.  

    We are greatly looking forward to the range of new possibilities of a larger space, and hope you are too! Between now and our planned opening this September, there is a lot of work to be done in order to house the Event Series. Please take a moment to review our Indiegogo Campaign at: www.igg.me/at/microscope
