"What is a Film Artist Anyway?"

"An Artist who has no faith is like a painter who was born blind" (Andrei Tarkovsky) 

Just what is a Film Artist anyway? Find out more in an evening of celebration as we mark eight years of the UCC/Arts Council Film Artist in Residence scheme. We will welcome back our 2021 Artist, Tadhg O'Sullivan, who will be joined by our 2022 Film Artist in Residence, Yvonne McDevitt.  For this very special event, our artists will come together to discuss their respective approaches to filmmaking as an artistic practice.
