Young Irish Film Makers are launching their annual screenwriting competition aimed at finding short scripts that will be produced as part of the National Youth Film & Animation School which takes place in August 2019. This competition is aimed at 16 -25 year olds and looks to mentor young screenwriters in producing short film scripts that will be shot as part of the summer programme.
Selected candidates will be mentored with a series of scriptwriting workshops by an industry professional who will help them craft, shape and redraft their scripts for the big screen. Winners will receive €100 and the knowledge that their scripts will be produced as part of the NYFAS. The National Youth Film & Animation School is funded by Screen Ireland and aims to give first time young screenwriters the opportunity to get a writing credit with Ireland’s film funding body. Four short scripts will be selected as part of the screenwriting competition and the deadline for submission is March 31st.
