Moderated by Alice Butler (aemi, Dublin)
with projects by Motsonian, James Davoll and Georgia Bates
The Rough Cut is a free event for new work and work-in-progress by artists working with the moving image.
For artists, it's a useful way to share and get feedback on your work in a supportive and unthreatening environment. For everyone else, it's a chance to see interesting new films.
This month, we're showing the following projects:
Colony Collapse (Because bees don’t care what humans think is impossible)
Mother of the Mountain
