Young filmmakers create archive inspired outputs for Rathmullan Festival

A group of 12 young filmmakers from Derry and Donegal were brought together (virtually) for a unique programme using archive footage to create new films.

Delivered in partnership with the Rathmullan Film Festival and the Make Film History project, the programme enabled participants to make short films for this year's festival which is going online on 18-21 February.  

Over the course of two weeks, participants learnt how to film and edit videos using their own smartphone or tablet devices with Camila Meegan and Kieran Kelly (Poca Productions). They also took part in a Q&A session with critically acclaimed filmmaker Tadgh O'Sullivan.

The young filmmakers also gained access to moving image archives such as the IFI, BFI and BBC and learnt to re-use the footage to create their own unique films.

You can watch the trailer for the project here:

The films will be available during the Rathmullan Film Festival and can be accessed anytime from 18-21 February by clicking here.

There will be a Zoom Launch Event on Sunday 21st February at 3pm. Click here for more details and to book your place.
