Saturday March 11th, 1.40pm, The Regal Cinema

Fusion is a diverse programme of short films from two of the most established youth film organisations in the country: Cork Young Filmmakers (CYF) and Wexford Youth Film Project.

CYF offers week-long and two-day hands-on film workshops across Cork County each year which are always very popular. The short films are screened at Cork County Hall at an annual Gala event. The wildly entertaining and darkly imaginative Psycho-Therapy, Burgers and Lemonaid all received audience awards at last November’s Gala. We are always proud to provide workshops to, and platform films made by, young people from diverse communities. Practice Session was made in Clonakilty and brought together young people from the Ukrainian community, from the Direct Provision centre and the local community to collaborate on a short film over two days.

Wexford Youth Film Project is a veritable hothouse of youth filmmaking which produces a slate of wonderfully engaging films each year and has launched the budding careers of some of the most promising young talents currently emerging on the scene. In The Visitor, Wexford Youth Film Project pushes the envelope by adopting the TV series format. What happens when an alien arrives in an Irish household as an exchange student? Hilarity ensues…
