The Fresh Film Festival is a national film festival for young people, aged between 7 and 18, which takes place in Limerick each year.
The Fresh Film Festival grew out of a need for a specific film festival for young people that would firstly assess their needs and then develop a programme that would suit their requirements. The festival is committed to the creation of a strong film culture in Ireland which it feels can be achieved by having film-making and film education freely accessible to young people.
The highlight of the festival is Irelands Young Filmmaker of the Year Awards, which showcases the best of Irish filmmaking talent. There is a junior section for 7 - 12 yr olds and a senior section for 12 - 18 yr olds. We also run a number of master classes in aspects of filmmaking that can be easily replicated in the classroom or at home by the individual.
