Cinemagic Dublin presents a Summer Season of family movies and media workshops for all ages beginning on Saturday 11th June at Liffey Trust Studios and Odeon Point Square Dublin.
Film, TV and media professionals involved in creative opportunities for young people include writer director Aisling Walsh, Producer Jeanie Igoe, (Conversations With Friends), Actor Art Campion, Presenters Stephen Byrne, Zainab Boladale and Clara Murray, Character Designer Matthew Howorth, Brown Bag Films, George Watson, Aardman Animations and Science Media guru Mark Langtry. The workshops are the first return to live events for the film festival charity in Dublin since 2019 due to the virtual nature of lockdown events.
There are special film screenings of family favourites, some introduced by special guests, to bring the magic of the movies alive for young audiences. On screen offerings include a Double Bill Superworm/The Snail and The Whale, a Double Bill We’re Going on A Bear Hunt / The Bear, classic book adaptation The Iron Giant, and a 40th Anniversary screening of The Last Unicorn.
A Film Academy will bring together students to work under the guidance of film industry professionals in the production of a new short film giving aspiring filmmakers an insight to the different disciplines on a film set.
Young people passionate about movie watching and critiquing can get involved to watch and review new films at our Young Film Consultants Screenings and Workshops on 7th August.
Young Filmmakers aged 4-25 who have already crafted a short or wish to take on a summer challenge are invited to submit their short films to the Cinemagic Young Filmmaker competition for 2022 and the entry deadline is 1 August.
Joan Burney Keatings, Cinemagic CEO said “I really encourage young audiences to embrace the magic of the movies and come out to try something new, find out about the film and television industry and get motivated. We are delighted with the support of our funders and partners to be able to return to live events to offer that much needed creative environment for young people to develop talents and be inspired.”
