Waterford Youth Arts have made it into the Fresh Film Festival – Ireland’s Young Filmmaker Of The Year Junior Final with not just one but two of their entries.

The FFF is Ireland's top film festival for young people and has been running for the last 22 years and with over 1500 entries overall this year between all categories. WYA has beaten the odds this year with both "60 Seconds Remaining" and "Kinda Overwatch" making it to Ireland's Young Film Maker of the Year Junior Final. These two films were created, recorded and edited by the young people all aged under 12 years and are members of WYA’s Film Workshop's. The films are being shown in Screen 1 in Odeon, Limerick on Wednesday the 21st of March.

The Film Workshops are a fantastic way for young people to get practical experience of making films, they learn about screenwriting, story boarding, camera usage, film-sound, special effects and editing in a safe environment. Workshops are run for three different age groups 9 – 11’s, 12 – 14’s and 15 – 19’s. The next round of Film workshops are starting up again on the 11th of April and new potential filmmakers are always welcome - no experience necessary.
