aemi Affiliate Programme

aemi offers support to Irish and Ireland-based artists working with the moving image in a number of ways. To avail of any of these resources you can sign up and become an aemi affiliate at no cost.

To contact us about becoming an aemi affiliate please email info@aemi.ie

Resources available to aemi affiliates include the following:

Monthly Newsletter

In turn, if you would like to submit something that might be relevant to an upcoming newsletter you can do so at info@aemi.ie

Advisory Sessions

One-on-one advice sessions for Irish and Ireland-based artists working with the moving image and who are no longer in full-time education.

These informal hour-long sessions with aemi curators are aimed at developing practice in a wide range of areas. The sessions are an opportunity to discuss production, post-production, exhibition strategies, funding, and promotion and can take place at any stage in the development of a work. While we can look at a limited amount of viewing material in advance of these sessions as well as some material during the session itself, it is best to leave as much time as possible for discussion. It might also be helpful to bring any written material about the work such as practice description, artist bio etc. Following the session artists will be asked to complete a short evaluation form so that we can monitor how helpful the sessions have been and to ensure they are as useful for artists as possible in the future. Due to the circumstances presented by Covid-19, until further notice one-on-one advisory sessions will be conducted remotely via video or phone calls. To book a one-on-one session or to become an aemi affiliate artist email info@aemi.ie

aemi Rough Cut sessions

Rough Cut is an aemi event that provides film artists with the opportunity to present works-in-progress at various stages of development to a guest curator, programmer, academic or critic in a supportive peer environment. This is a useful way to get critical feedback and advice or guidance around production, funding and exhibition strategy. Originally due to take place at Studio 6 at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, each session now takes place online due to current restrictions. If this is an event that you would be interested in presenting at or attending, please contact us at info@aemi.ie

aemi will present a second short series of online Rough Cut events over 2021. More info coming soon.

Workshops & info sessions

Film artists, we would like to ask you, are there workshops you would be interested in/ currently not offered in your area?
