The Junior Galway Film Fleadh in association with Galway Film Centre and SpunOut (a leading national youth organisation) announce their fifth annual Story Pitching Competition open to young people between the ages of 10 – 18 years old.
If you are interested in competing, you are invited to write a short (500 words) idea for a story – it can be for a feature film, a short film, a documentary, a book or even a video game!
Begin by drafting your idea then practice it in front of family and friends. Become comfortable relaying the story outline. Because, should your idea be one of the 3 shortlisted, you will be invited to present it in the Town Hall Theatre to an assembled audience and jury during the festival on Thursday 8th November.
The Prize – a drama or animation summer camp sponsored by Galway Film Centre which will include 1 year’s membership to the Centre (allowing entry to the RTE short script award ) + weekly newsletter.
Closing date – Wednesday 23rd October 2012
