Schools & Youth Groups Programme

Thursday March 12th, 10am, Mall Arts Centre

In recognition of the amount, variety and sheer quality of filmmaking taking place in Irish schools and youth groups, we present this varied, exciting programme of short films. 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. A charming comedy from Croatia completes the programme. We hope you enjoy seeing your films on a big screen! This screening will be followed by a special presentation of Brendan Canty’s Christy.
