Screen Ireland are returning to this year’s National Student Media Awards, as the sponsors of Film Script of the Year.

Fostering the talent of Irish filmmakers, Screen Ireland is responsible for the promotion of Irish cinema around the world, by funding and producing award winning titles. In recent years, Screen Ireland has contributed to funding films such as Brooklyn, Room, Sing Street and The Lobster in recent years.

Cinema is not the sole focus for Screen Ireland. Most notably, Sally Rooney’s Normal People (dir. Lenny Abrahamson and Hettie MacDonald) received funding through the Screen Ireland TV Drama Production Fund, supporting Irish screenwriters and directors.

Screen Ireland also works to aid young industry professionals in pitching and acquiring resources through their many schemes, including screen training, local film festivals and short films and animation. They also promote Ireland as a shooting location to international filming groups.

We are proud to be a part of the good work done by Screen Ireland through our ‘Film Script of the Year’ award.
