Cork Young Filmmakers

Thursday March 7th & Friday March 8th, The Regal Cinema

For the past sixteen 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 secondary schools during 2023/24 by the creative young people participating in these workshops, which give them a first-hand opportunity to express themselves through film.

This programme will be accompanied by a selection of inspiring short films from throughout the festival.

CYF is a Cork County Youth Arts Training Programme managed by Cork Film Centre and funded by Cork County Council, The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon with support from SECAD Partnership, Cork Education and Training Board, Creative Ireland and the Local Creative Youth Partnership, and supported also by Cork County Council’s Community Fund.
