Applications invited for youth filmmaking workshop
The Cork Young Filmmakers organisation is inviting applications for its final workshop of the year, to be held in Ballincollig.
A handful of places remain for the two-day event which runs through this Saturday and Sunday, November 17-18.
Applicants must be aged 1418 and no previous experience is necessary.
The filmmaking project is funded by Cork County Council and SECAD and teaches up to 400 young people valuable industry skills.
The course follows similar weekend events held in Castletownbere and Midleton earlier this year.
Further projects also take place at various venues throughout the county yearly.
Participants will develop skills before and behind the camera by “scripting their own drama, shooting the scenes, acting, directing, and crewing a short film under the guidance of professional filmmakers from Cork Film Centre”, says event coordinator Mary McGrath.
All the films made during the year are to be screened at a gala celebration in County Hall later this month.
The Ballincollig workshop takes place at the Cork Film Centre Gallery, at the Powdermills, from 10.30am to 4.30pm daily. Registration is €20.
