Dublin Fringe Festival – September 9th – 24th – Where? Just ALL OVER Dublin City

Well into becoming a National Institution Dublin Fringe Festival is as relevant and fresh to first time performers, artists, producers and writers – showcasing the best in new Irish talent and inviting over the most innovative and creative International Acts.

For over twenty years Fringe has been bringing the unexpected, the unaccepted, the mesmerising, the totally head scratching, the unheard of and the most mentioned of Spoken Word, Live Art, Spectacle, Comedy, Theatre & Outdoor Nirvana. Volunteering with Fringe is never a straightforward affair with shifts that can have you stewarding a Brass Band upon a roof top of city centre car park, to minding a horse to corralling audiences into a shipping container for a daylight rave.  One thing for sure is it’s never going to be boring during those two weeks in Sept.

So why not take a change and volunteer – you never know it would be the beginning of a beautiful friendship with the Performing Arts in Dublin – Please find application attached – return completed to volunteers@fringefest.comclosing date is August 16th ☺ #GetYourFringeOn

Casting for IADT Short Film ‘Faded’

 

 

The National Film School at IADT is currently casting for a short film, titled “Faded”, produced in conjunction with IADT.

The film follows Alice, a woman with increasing mental deterioration. As she prepares to leave her home of many years, Alice takes one last trip down memory lane, distortedly reliving both the beautiful and nightmarish moments from her marriage.

We’re in need of a brown/hazel eyed actress to play the character of Alice, with the playing age between 55-80.

Renumeration: As it is a student funded film, the role is unpaid. However, we offer a small gratuity fee of €25 per day, with food and travel expenses covered by the production.

Shooting Dates: 4th & 5th April 2017

If you would be interested in the project, or should further details be required, please contact: fadedshortfilm@gmail.com by 2nd April 2017
