In addition to a mixture of workshops, script competition and panels, the short film programme will allow youthful filmmakers to show their work on the big screen.
This is an ideal opportunity to showcase a film made individually, amongst friends, a college or class group or with a youth or sports club. Making a film has never been easier, and with a group of friends and a camera (or even a phone or tablet), it’s simple to shoot a mini-masterpiece.
The only rules for submissions are that the film must be under 15 minutes in length and must have been made in 2013/14. A rough cut of the film on DVD is acceptable at submission stage. Any genre is welcomed, such as documentary, animation, drama, action, musical, comedy, sci-fi, horror, experimental or any mix thereof.
The winning short will be screened as part of next year’s Galway Film Fleadh shorts programme, meaning the lucky winner will rub shoulders with some of Ireland and the world’s most exciting filmmakers.
Entry forms can be found at this link and the closing date for submissions will be Friday 29th August 2014. The Junior Galway Film Fleadh will be held from November 12th to 15th 2014.
