Galway Film Centre announce new Feature Film Script Mentoring Programme
25 Jun 2014 :
Galway Film Centre has announced a new Feature Film Script Mentoring Programme, in partnership with the Western Development Commission (WDC).
The aim of the programme is to provide professional script development for six participants over a period of six months, from Treatment stage to a First Draft screenplay, to create a fiction, feature film script (90-110 pages).

The training will involve participation in a workshop process overseen by script supervisor, Mark McIlrath. Workshops will take place over three weekends (Friday to Sunday inclusive) spaced in two-month intervals beginning in September and based in Galway. Participants will have ongoing online access and feedback from the tutor between workshops. The workshops are spread out over a period of months to allow the participants to develop their work and to refine and rewrite their screenplays to deadlines.

Participants will be selected on the basis of a Treatment and a short CV to be submitted to Galway Film Centre by July 31st 2014. To apply for this programme participants must be based in one of the seven western counties: Donegal, Sligo, Leitrim, Mayo, Roscommon, Galway or Clare. The Treatment should be a maximum of five pages and outline the main characters in the film, how their story develops and the key relationships within their story. More details on the application process are available on www.galwayfilmcentre.ie

The WDC is a regional development agency promoting the economic and social development of the Western Region. It actively supports the regionís creative sector through the WDC Micro-Loan Fund for Creative Industries (www.wdc.ie) and the MyCreativeEdge website (www.mycreativeedge.eu).
