I love hearing about people who have the get up and go to do something new and refreshing. Liking this idea a lot, will have to check it out.
Here’s the blurb:
City Arts is proud to announce the launch of Blas, a film club with a twist on Tuesday, 15th February 2011 at 7pm. Meaning taste in both Irish and Welsh, the aim of Blas is to raise awareness of the underrated and overlooked genre of minority language film, placing special emphasis on films in the Celtic languages and connecting them with each other through common themes of Escape and Change.
No stranger to our native tongue, City Arts have played host to many Irish-language and bilingual events in the past, including Gaeltacht na bhFéartháilte, Duanaire mo Muintire as part of the Imram Irish-language literary festival and Tríd an gCoill.
Involving both short and feature-length films from across the Celtic nations, including a rare film in Canadian Gaelic, Blas also plays host to talks with a selection of Irelands talented directors, screenwriters and actors. The event is finished off with music and refreshments, all taking place in the stylish City Arts building on Bachelors Walk.
Blas is a bilingual night of film and music curated by Scott De Buitléir and hosted by City Arts; presenting the Celtic languages in an urban and contemporary setting. Blas will take place from 7pm until 9:30pm on the third Tuesday of each month; admission is 5 while a year’s membership is 50.
Blas is part-funded by the Dublin Bus Community Support Programme.
