Pow-Wow “A conference or meeting for discussion, especially among friends or colleagues”.
Details for Dingle Pow-Wow 2018 coming soon.
A new event aimed specifically at young creatives in the Film and Television industry, which will assist them in gaining knowledge of both film and television.
This new festival day-long event, entitled Dingle Pow-Wow, will bring together industry leaders from Ireland and abroad to assist in the growth of film and television here in Ireland.
Professional leaders will share their story to help young filmmakers in achieving theirs.
In a direct effort to increase the number of Irish filmmakers attending the festival, we are introducing a day-long Banter and Chinwag between filmmakers and some of the best in the business, based on the successful model of Animation Dingle’s conference. We aim to build on this event each year, making it an annual part of the festival.
Television will have a strong element to this conference, bringing a new and dynamic element to the Festival.
Dingle Pow-Wow aims to provide upcoming filmmakers with insights and knowledge into the film and television sector. It is an open day set in a magical venue, where students, professionals and industry leaders are accessible to each other, promoting parity, equality and fraternity. Within this beautiful and nurturing environment, young creatives can discuss opportunities and learn skills and new techniques from world leaders in film and television.
Venue – The Blasket Centre
Out on the very edge of Europe, off the Dingle Peninsula, lie the mystical Blasket Islands, a small archipelago renowned for its storytellers. After many years of hardship and emigration, the last inhabitants left in 1953, and today, you can celebrate the story of the Blasket Islanders and their unique literary tradition at Ionad an Bhlascaoid Mhóir (The Blasket Centre). Most well know writers from The Blaskets include, Tomás Ó Criomhthain (1855-1937), Peig Sayers (1873-1958), and Muiris Ó Súilleabháin.
With stunning views of the wild Atlantic coast and islands at the halfway point of the Slea Head Drive, the Blasket Centre is a fascinating heritage and cultural centre/ museum, honouring the unique community who lived on the remote Blasket Islands until their evacuation in 1953. It is an inspirational setting for our Dingle Pow-Wow.
Bus provided – participants will take the scenic 16km drive from Dingle to the centre. Bus departs at 10.30am from Dingle Marina, and returns again at 5.15pm.
