In this Film Ireland podcast, Gemma Creagh talks to Jayne Foley, the founder and Artistic Director of Fresh International Film Festival.
The 27th annual Fresh International Film Festival will take place from March 28 to April 1, 2023, showcasing hundreds of short films from Ireland’s future screen talent.
Founded in 1997 as the Irish School’s Video Competition, Fresh Film was originally a schools competition for secondary students. It has since grown into a year round organisation with a focus on national and international filmmakers spanning the primary and secondary age groups. ‘Fresh International Film Festival’ now includes ‘Ireland’s Young Filmmaker of the Year Awards `, which constitute three sections – Junior (7-12 years) – Senior (12- 18 years) – The International (7-19 years). Each section is open to individual filmmakers, schools, youth and community groups.
