Great short films and the Best young filmmakers!

We are now accepting submissions for the 2011 First Cut! Youth Film Festival.Our deadline is August 26th,2011.
First Cut! announces plans for this years festival with some exciting changes in store.
For a start we would now like to offer an opportunity to young filmmakers to showcase their work at our festival on October 1st and 2nd. We are inviting young people under the age of 21 to enter their short films.
The Festival takes place this year over two days in Glanmire, Co Cork .In previous years the focus has been on premiering the films made by young people who are involved in The First Cut! Film Project.
In response to the interest from young people from outside the Cork Harbour region in 2011, although the festival will continue to have a focus on local talent, we now welcome film from outside this area, nationally and even internationally!
What are we looking for?
This year First Cut! is looking for short films of any genre; drama, documentary, comedy, animation, music video, sci fi / horror, artistic/experimental, made by local, national and international young filmmakers under 21.
Submission Deadline: Noon on Friday August 26th, 2011. No Entry Fee! Send your film on a DVD, highest quality possible please!

First Draft! Winners..

The 2011 Make a Film in a Week project took place last week and was, once again, a fun success!

The scripts made into short films during this week were both the brainchildren of Cian Clesham. His script THE SWAN became became one of the films shot and the other film was adapted from one of Cian's ideas.

Special mention must be made of Georgia Doorley's script STARS AND PLANETS which was a close runner up.

Well done to all who participated!
