Schools & Youth Groups Programme

Thursday 7th, 10.30am, Mall Arts Centre

Secondary schools and youth groups are where many young people get their first chance to make a film. It is also where many young filmmakers have an opportunity to develop their skills and start honing their craft. This programme is a recognition of the amount, variety and sheer quality of filmmaking taking place in schools and youth groups throughout Ireland and beyond.

The screening will be introduced by Cork acting legend Pascal Scott (The Young Offenders, Killinaskully), a longtime supporter of First Cut! Festival.
