2016-10-28 9:45:00 : Katie McNeice
Screenwriters are invited to submit to the 2017 Short Script Award, which is supported by the Arts Offices of Cork City and County Councils, and is designed to encourage filmmaking in the Cork region.

Applications must be submitted before 5pm, Friday December 9th and must be between 7-12 pages in length. All genres and styles are welcome, including treatments for documentary, though applicants must have full rights to the material they have submitted.

The winner of the €8,000 prize toward the cost of production will also receive mentorship over a nine-month period, support with locations and planning the festival release strategy. The winning project must be shot in Cork City or county.

Rossa Mullin, Film in Cork:
“The Short Script Award affords filmmakers in the region the chance to work with a budget to bring what are ideas on paper to life on the big screen. This would not be possible if it weren’t for the financial support from the Arts Offices in Cork City and Cork County Council, who have been an integral part of bringing this to fruition.”

“The process will see three to five scripts shortlisted by mid-January 2017, with those projects going forward for interview in February. By this time, the writer will need to have a producer and director on board to demonstrate how the script will be brought to life on the big screen. It is very exciting to see this Short Script Award in Cork, the first in the region since 2012, and we look forward to helping the selected project get made and seen by as wide an audience as possible.”
