Cork County Council seeks applications for a Filmmaker in Residence. 

This Residency that will develop and deliver a number of initiatives in which the selected  film artist can

  • assist young people’s participation in film 
  • engage with emerging filmmakers and film festivals in Cork County,
  • strengthen the position of film in the context of the Council’s overall arts service provision and
  • enable improved access to film making in different localities or communities. 
  • The Residency will also provide the filmmaker with an opportunity to develop and realise a small-scale filmmaking project.

The Filmmaker in Residence will support the work of Cork Young Filmmakers, an initiative of the Arts Service of Cork County Council and Cork Film Centre which provides access to creative film making for young people in County Cork in settings where young people can work in a safe, managed, supportive environment with professional film personnel.
