YIFM have been running the National Youth Film School since 2002, and in 2017, we started to run the residential school for young filmmakers. It was a huge success this summer and we will be running it again in summer 2019.
The programme is jam packed with interactive workshops in all aspects of filmmaking – from writing to lighting, production to editing – all with professional experts in the field. This coupled with the experience of working with a professional film crew is not to be missed.
Over the years, the National Youth Film School has attracted young people from all over Ireland, Europe and even the USA to Kilkenny for this one-of-a-kind opportunity to work at a professional level on a broadcast quality film production. Many young people have used their work with YIFM as a portfolio piece and gone on to attend film schools such as The National Film School at IADT in Dún Laoghaire.
Have a look at the video to see how much fun the young people had! And if you want more information for this year, go to:
