Cinemagic International Film and Television Festival For Young People and the National Performing Arts School (NPAS) are joining forces for the inaugural NPAS and Cinemagic Industry Film Academy which will take place in Dublin this July.

To mark the launch, Oscar-nominated actress and Cinemagic Patron, Saoirse Ronan will be in Dublin on Monday 30 March for a Q&A where she will be interviewed by two young aspiring actors. This Q&A event is open to the public and free to attend but is ticketed so advance booking is essential. Young aspiring actors will be given the chance to ask questions and gain industry insight from one of Ireland’s best actresses. This event, which is designed for young people over 12 years of age, will take place at 35A Barrow Street at 4pm. To book a place at this free Q&A contact info@npas.ie or 01 8944660.

The Q&A also coincides with the launch of the programme for the 2015 Cinemagic International Film and Television Festival for young people which will take place from 5-17 May. The Festival line up will include 13 days of workshops, film screenings, young critics panels, education programmes and practical masterclasses giving young people a chance to view film from around the world and learn what life behind or in front of the camera in film and TV is really like. Full programme details will be announced in the coming weeks at www.cinemagic.ie.

NPAS Film Academy, in partnership with Cinemagic is a creative workshop where young people learn all about what goes into making a movie, from writing their script to attending their movie premiere screening.

It will run from 27 July - 1 August 2015 for ages 12-18 in the Barrow Street venue. Every aspect of the film making process is covered, from script analysis, to shot lists and from costuming to directing.

Each of the departments is manned by students with highly qualified industry professionals taking on the roles of mentors and advisors. Students will also be given the opportunity to attend Talent Lab Q&A’s with visiting, high-profile Industry guests who are working in various areas in the world of film and television such as Ben Kellett, Director of 'Mrs Brown's Boys'.

The students will gain skills in directing, camera operation, editing, animation, scriptwriting, creating Special FX and many more. Whilst boosting creativity, confidence, team-working and social skills, the young filmmakers also produce their own short movie which will premiere at the Cinemagic Festivals worldwide.

Filmmaking mentors include Oscar Nominated and BAFTA winning Director Michael Lennox (‘Boogaloo and Graham’, ‘A Patch of Fog’) and Filmmaker Patrick Maxwell. There are a very limited number of places available on this 6 day intensive course. Contact info@npas.ie or +353 1 8944660 for further information and how to book.

The Q&A with Saoirse Ronan will take place at 35A Barrow Street at 4pm on Monday, 30 March to mark the launch of the inaugural NPAS and Cinemagic Industry Film Academy.
