Irish Examiner - County - - News - Christy Parker

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.

Par­tic­i­pants should ap­ply by e-mail to corky­oung­film­mak­[email protected]
