Cork Young Filmmakers Summer Week Programme

Friday 27th April – 1.45pm

Each year CYF runs a number of Summer Film Week workshops in County Cork. Young people get the opportunity to work with other young people with similar interests as well as with professional filmmakers and equipment.

Taking part builds confidence and networks so that afterwards young people can make their own short films in collaboration with friends made on the programme. For some, it opens up access to further education and employment in film-related areas which they otherwise might not have known existed. We conclude the CYF programme with a selection of films that came out of the 2017 Summer Film Weeks, as well as an award-winning film from a two-day CYF workshop.
