Cork Young Filmmakers

Friday 11th
Regal Cinema & Mall Arts Centre

For the past fifteen years, the Cork Young Filmmakers (CYF) programme has been bringing hands-on filmmaking workshops annually to hundreds of young people throughout County Cork. This screening showcases films made in schools during 2021/22 by the creative young people participating in these workshops, which give them a first-hand opportunity to express themselves through film.

CYF is managed by Cork Film Centre and funded by Cork County Council, SECAD, Cork ETB and Creative Ireland.

Kinsale is steeped in history of national and international significance. The students interviewed local historians and scholars, and explored historical sites and some of the major events and personalities linked to their hometown.

Kinsale – Harbour of History was mentored by Cork Film Centre and funded by a Cork County Council Arts Development Grant.
