NOISE Flicks is a youth film festival initiative of South Dublin County Council that began in March 2009. It is part of the NOISE South Dublin online project and networked NOISE Community of creative young people in South Dublin. www.noisesouthdublin.com
What is the purpose of the festival?
NOISE Flicks aims to showcase and celebrate the creative talent of young people in South Dublin County, ages 14 to 25. We consult with professional filmmakers and film, TV, and video lecturers to create a festival that may assist young people in learning more about and gaining access to the film industry. Awards are also given in two age categories: 14 to 18 and 19 to 25.
Who may participate?
The film competition is open to individual young filmmakers (14 - 25yrs), living or studying in South Dublin County, as well as groups (such as in school, PLC or Third Level colleges or youth services) in South Dublin County. Those submitting to the festival must have at least one member of their group either living or studying in South Dublin County. Films submitted must have been completed after September 2008.
Deadline for submissions: Monday, March 1st 2010 at noon
Selection will be based on originality and creativity; strength of script/story; and quality and contribution of editing, camera work and directing to the overall story. Decisions will be made by a panel of judges. Judges’ decisions are final.
Films will be short-listed for screening at RUA RED South Dublin County Arts Centre on Saturday, March 20th 2010.
