About First Cut! Youth Film Festival


First Cut! Youth Film Festival was launched as a one day event in 2009 to showcase new films by young filmmakers, with screenings, workshops and talks by film industry professionals. The success of the festival has seen it grow to a 3-day event, with almost 200 films submitted from all over Ireland and abroad.

First Cut! Youth Film Festival is programmed and facilitated by Cork Film Centre, with core funding from Cork County Council Arts Office and the Arts Council of Ireland.
