We were delighted to have the Irish Film Board sponsor the Film Script of the Year award at the 2018 National Student Media awards.

Since it was created in 1993, the Irish Film Board has seen huge successes in both film and television. The IFB is regarded as a world class film board thanks to their creations becoming international successes. Examples of these include Room (2016) and The Wind That Shakes The Barley (2006).

Thanks to the IFB and its incentives, Huge Hollywood film crews have filmed here recently, the most well known being the newest Star Wars franchise, that was filmed on Skellig Michael on the South West Coast of Ireland.

Congratulations to Cian Johnston from GCD, who took home the Film Script of the Year award at this years Smedias. Very well done to him on such a big achievement.

The IFB has had many successes in developing small original ideas to the big screen, which is one of the reasons why it was a perfect sponsor for our Film Script of the year award at this years Smedias.
