We want your stories! Have you ever wanted to write the story behind a feature or short film, web or television series? The narrative and/or world behind a computer game? The script for a novel, short story or comic book? Do you just have a story to tell?

Due to high demand the deadline for our Script Competition has been extended to 12 noon, Friday November 4th – so those of you who have an idea, but haven’t submitted it yet, have a whole weekend to get it down on paper. The competition is open to anyone age 10 – 18 years old and all you have to do is send a (max 500 word) idea for your story and you could win:

  • A place on one of the Galway Film Centre’s summer camps (in animation or drama)
  • 1 year’s membership to the Galway Film Centre (including a subscription to their newsletter)

Cáit Ní Nialláin was the winner of the first script competition, and according to the budding film-maker, the Junior Film Fleadh Script Competition had an immense bearing on her future:  “I went on to the BA Connect with Film Studies at NUIG where I studied film as well as English and history. As part of our semester abroad programme I went to Drexel University in Philadelphia where I studied Film & Video. This school of film provided me with two more screenwriting modules which helped me produce other creative work. Based on all of this, you could definitely say that the Junior Film Fleadh pointed me in the right direction”.
