Darklight Film Festival held its inaugural benefit at the Sugar Club on Sunday, with quite a stellar line-up, featuring David Kitt responding with a mesmerising live performance to a remix of Dublin: The Movie. Dublin-based electronic artist Somadrone performed, with sounds that veered between delicate nuanced manipulations and cavity-rattling sonics.
As we are all only too aware by now, the importance of DIY fund-raising in the new economy is paramount. Darklight have responded positively by holding this benefit to support their work and the 2009 Darklight Festival. In return their supporters got a great night out. Smiles all round then.
