Here at, we are excited to have the Irish Film Board sponsor the Film Script of the Year category at the National Student Media awards 2018.

The Irish Film Board has had unbelievable success in the film and television industries since it began in 1993. They have had success on both the national and international stage, with their most notable movies being Room(2016) and The Wind That Shakes The Barley (2006).

The standard of Irish Film has increased tenfold thanks to the IFB and is now recognised as a world class film board. There has been a huge increase in large, high-budget movie crews coming to Ireland to film scenes. This is thanks to the IFB and the incentives it has set to attract these crews to this country.

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

With the prestige of the Irish Film Board linking up with the Smedias, We are sure to find the next Steven Spielberg through this category!
