Submissions for The National Student Media Awards 2021 have opened and we are delighted to announce that Screen Ireland has returned to sponsor the Film Script of the Year award at this year’s awards.

Screen Ireland fosters the talent of Irish filmmakers around the world by funding and producing award-winning titles. Screen Ireland has contributed to the funding of films such as Brooklyn, Room, Sing Street and The Lobster in recent years. Most recently they helped fund the production of the TV adaption of Sally Rooney’s Normal People.

On top of this, Screen Ireland also provides schemes to aid aspiring filmmakers with pitching and acquiring resources for their career. Their schemes also include screen training, local film festivals and short films and animation.

We are thrilled to have an amazing Irish organisation like Screen Ireland involved in the awards to support student media producers providing them with a fantastic opportunity to have their work recognised by industry professionals.
