First Cut! Youth Film Festival Youghal: 27th - 29th April
For the 4th year, First Cut! Youth Film Festival will showcase in Youghal, new films by young filmmakers from Youghal, all across Ireland and beyond. This year, the festival t is extended to take place over three days - packed with screenings, workshops and talks by film industry professionals.
The Festival provides a valuable opportunity for young people to network and share their passion for making films with a wide group of like-minded people in the amazing venue at Youghal’s Mall Arts Centre. Every type of film is screened: fiction, documentary, animation, music video and more.
2017 has yielded a record number of film entries covering an unprecedented geographical sweep. Short films made by young people poured in from Donegal to Cork, and many counties in between, and the standard of these films has never been higher. We want to invite everyone to join us for three days devoted to celebrating the skill and imagination of young filmmakers.
First Cut! Youth Film Festival is delighted to welcome Peter Foott, director of the hit comedy ‘The Young Offenders’, on Saturday at 1.30 pm to discuss his work and share his insights into the filmmaking process. His debut feature film ‘The Young Offenders’, which had the widest Irish cinematic release of 2016 and soared at the box office. Prior to this he was creator, writer and producer of RTE’s hit comedy show ‘The Fear’ and a producer, writer and director on RTE’s longest running comedy show ‘Republic Of Telly’. His music video credits include producing and directing The Rubberbandits’ ‘Horse Outside’ video.
The festival is a free and open event due to the funding we have received from the Arts Council and Cork County Council and the generous support of local community and business, (Festival Friends). The local film community has also come in behind this event and has provided mentoring and support to the young people. An event like this really can make a difference to a young persons’ life!
As it’s a family event, we ask people to come along with family and friends and enjoy these amazing short films in the lovely 'pop up cinema' with a relaxed atmosphere. Entry is Free and All are Welcome! ... See MoreSee Less
