Call­out for film­mak­ers to make the first cut

Irish Examiner - County - - News - Sean O’Rior­dan first­cut­film­fes­ti­

Bud­ding young film­mak­ers are be­ing called to en­ter a com­pe­ti­tion to find the county’ s best emerg­ing cin­e­mato­graphic tal­ent. Sub­mis­sions for the First Cut Youth Film Fes­ti­val 2019 are now be­ing ac­cepted.

A spokes­woman said they are look­ing for tal­ented peo­ple be­tween the ages of 12 and 24 to take part: “If you have a short film you want to screen, then First Cut wants to hear from you.”

Whether you are an in­di­vid­ual film­maker or part of a school, col­lege, or youth group, it’s free to sub­mit a film — whether it’s fiction, doc­u­men­tary, an­i­ma­tion or mu­sic video.

The dead­line for en­tries is Mon­day, Jan­uary 14. The fes­ti­val runs March 6-9.

Based at the Mall Arts Cen­tre in Youghal, this an­nual fes­ti­val is ded­i­cated to show­cas­ing new films by young film­mak­ers.

Now in its tenth year, it of­fers screen­ings, work­shops and talks by film in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als in a friendly at­mos­phere.
