DEAF Live @ Filmbase

Filmbase is a not-for-profit resource centre for filmmakers. Their building on Curved Street, in the heart of Dublin’s Temple Bar, is a public space where filmmakers can network, hire filmmaking equipment, take training courses and receive support and information about working within the Irish film industry. Filmbase also publishes the cultural magazine Film Ireland and administers a number of film and documentary production award schemes.
This year DEAF presents a series of live gigs in and installations at Filmbase throughout the ten days of the festival. See below for the full schedule.

To launch the Filmbase 10 day installation we’ll be hosting a short open evening on the 22nd with a special live music & visual performance from Donal Dineen. All are welcome to come along & then its over to the Button Factory for our first gig of the festival Soap & Skin.

NOTE/BAR:  The Button Factory Cafe opposite Filmbase will be open for business for the live events providing a full bar – plastic glasses will be provided & you can then bring your drinks over to Filmbase.
