The Galway Film Centre is looking for community, social and voluntary groups from Galway city to take part in a project that will enable them to make their own documentary.
Funded principally by Galway City Council, this project is now in its 15th year, during which time the Galway Film Centre has built up an impressive track record of giving people from a wide range of backgrounds access to the art-form of documentary making. The project aims to facilitate community groups to take an active part in the filmmaking process, to develop and create a short documentary in order to tell their own story.
Groups hoping to participate in the projects should have a unique voice, which encapsulates their community, tradition, spirit, lifestyle, views and culture. The selected groups must be able to make a significant time commitment over the summer months. The programme is flexible and can be tailored to suit the availability of selected group members.
The Galway Film Centre will give professional advice and support to the selected group throughout the entire production process. All equipment and technical advice will be provided and there will be no financial cost for the participating group.
To date more than groups have participated and successfully completed their own films based on the common theme of identity. The selection of groups for the ID Film Project is on a competitive basis, and the Galway Film Centre is available for advice on the application process.
For more information and application form contact Nuala Broderick 091- 770748 or email: [email protected]. The closing date for entries is May 16.
