Cork Young Filmmakers (CYF) is thrilled to announce a 2-Day filmmaking workshop in Midleton this Halloween. CYF delivers an exciting hands-on workshop as part of an innovative countywide programme for young filmmakers aged 14-18 years.
The workshop takes place over in My Place, Midleton, Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th October, 10:30am to 4:30pm each day. The total cost per person is just €20.
Young filmmakers working as a group will learn and enhance filmmaking techniques. It’s all about having fun, building confidence, encouraging creativity and self-expression. Together participants will script their own drama, shoot the scenes, act, direct and crew a short film under the guidance of professional filmmakers from Cork Film Centre.

The films created during the workshops will be premiered on the big screen at the First Cut! Youth Film Festival, taking place 9th - 12th March 2021. All workshop participants are invited and will receive a copy of their film.
