Over the past decade, a group of underground filmmakers has emerged to define a new and visionary strain of filmmaking. Under the banner of Experimental Film Society, the filmmakers associated with this Irish-based company have forged a defiantly personal and marginal cinema that is fast becoming recognized as “an important new direction” (Donal Foreman, Estudios Irlandeses) in Irish film. Sharing an exploratory approach to filmmaking where films emerge from the interplay of sound, image and atmosphere rather than traditional storytelling techniques, their work has been singled out for its radical formal qualities and poetic sensibility. Made with low or no budgets, this is filmmaking at its most challenging and independent. Their archive of feature and medium length films is available on VOD to stream or download.
