‘Towards Confident Filmmaking’ – The 40-hour Training Programme



Cork Young Filmmakers, a Cork County Youth Arts Training Programme managed by Cork Film Centre, is launching a new and exciting filmmaking training course ‘Towards Confident Film Making’. The 40 hour training is designed  for young people, ideally between the ages of 15 and 21, who are interested in film-making and want to develop their skills and confidence in the areas of writing, story-telling, directing and acting. It’s not just about making a great movie. It’s about learning the skills to make a great movie – and to really enjoy the process. The focus is on the process of film-making, not just the end result.

Participants will learn how to learn skills for themselves, how to identify and move past their own ‘blocks’ in writing and performance. It ‘s all about finding your own authentic voice and having the confidence to use it.’

To apply for a position in this course, email corkyoungfilmmakers@gmail.com

The deadline for applications is Friday September 12th 5pm. If you are selected, there will be a nominal booking charge of €10. Applicants must make their own travel arrangements and bring a packed lunch each day.

The 2014 Towards Confident Film Making 40 hour programme will take place in Youghal. Part 1 will take place on Saturdays, Sept.27th to October 18th, and Part 2 will take place during mid-term break, Tuesday Oct 28th – Friday Oct. 1st, inclusive.
