Galway teens asked for film script ideas

TEENAGERS WITH a story to tell and who think it might make a good script for a film, the basis for a novel, or idea for a video game are asked to get writing.

The competition is open to those aged between 13 and 18 years old. Entrants must write a 500 word idea for a story which could be for a feature film, short film, a documentary, book, or video game!

The Junior Galway Film Fleadh is encouraging Galway teens to draft their idea, and then practise to family and friends performing the story outline. Five ideas will then be selected and the five authors will be asked to present it on the stage of the Town Hall Theatre from November 12 to 14.

Each idea will be critiqued by the award winning Irish screenwriter, Christian O’Reilly (Inside I’m Dancing, On Home Ground ), and following this, the assembled audience will vote on the best pitch/idea.

The first prize is a script training scholarship at the Galway Film Centre. The runner up will receive a book voucher for Charlie Byrne’s book shop.

The closing date for all entries is October 24. Entries can be posted to the Junior Galway Film Fleadh Script Competition, Cluain Mhuire, Monivea Road, Galway, or emailed to [email protected].

Entry forms are available from,,, and Charlie Byrne’s Bookshop, Middle Street.
