Bril­liant Davies brings a shine to Dark­light

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The reg­u­lar jam­boree of film that calls it­self Dark­light is cur­rently up and run­ning at var­i­ous venues throughout the cap­i­tal. This year the event, which cel­e­brates in­de­pen­dent, DIY and artist-based cinema, hangs around a cel­e­bra­tion of the un­touch­able Ter­ence Davies. The English film­maker, known for such tran­scen­dent pieces as Dis­tant Voices, Still Lives and The Long Day Closes, is the ben­e­fi­ciary of a full ret­ro­spec­tive and, fol­low­ing a screening of Of Time and the City at The Fac­tory to­mor­row, he will par­tic­i­pate in an ex­ten­sive pub­lic in­ter­view. Mr Davies is a great talker, so the con­ver­sa­tion should not be missed. The film be­gins at 6.30pm.

Ear­lier in the day, Sea­mus McGar­vey, one of our na­tion’s most pres­ti­gious cin­e­matog­ra­phers, will shoot the breeze with di­rec­tor Kieron J Walsh. Dark­light also fea­tures a fo­cus on gam­ing en­ti­tled Game­Jam. Be­gin­ning this evening, the project in­vites bud­ding de­sign­ers to brain­storm their way to­wards cre­at­ing a work­able game in one week­end. Jon Wright, di­rec­tor of Grab­bers, and Paddy Ea­son, visual ef­fects su­per­vi­sor on that tasty film, will be in town to dis­cuss the lo­gis­tic dif­fi­cul­ties in­volved in cre­at­ing a mon­ster movie on a lim­ited bud­get. Other films on the bill in­clude The End of the Earth is My Home, a sci­ence fic­tion flick from Alan Lam­bert and Lisanne Pa­jot, and James Swirsky’s Indie Game: The Movie. Dark­light runs un­til Sun­day. More de­tails on dark­
