“An oppurtunity to meet the future of the Irish film industry”
Fresh Film Festival in association with Huston School of Film and Digital Media, NUI Galway presents Re|Fresh, a selection of highlights from 20 years of the festival.
Fresh Film Festival is dedicated to encouraging and promoting the work of young filmmakers under the age of 18. Every year hundreds of young filmmakers submit their films in the hope of becoming Ireland’s Young Filmmaker of the Year and every year a selection of these films go on to win awards at festivals all over the world. Over its 20 years Fresh has identified, encouraged and celebrated thousands of emerging junior and senior filmmakers in Ireland and worldwide. Fresh alumni continue to forge careers in Irish film and moving image media.
The Re|Fresh 20th anniversary showcase is an opportunity to encounter the Fresh Film Festival and celebrate the diversity and talent that it has nurtured over two decades – and an oppurtunity to meet the future of the Irish film industry. There will be screenings of a selection of winning films, introduced by the filmmakers – who range from student to emergent to established filmmakers. There will also be a special announcement of new developments and partnerships as the festival moves into its third decade.
The event will be free and there will be light refreshments. We welcome anyone with an interest in Irish film and young filmmakers to come along.
Admission is free. Please see www.freshfilmfestival.net for more details.
