On November 28, students from Beara Community School attended the Cork Young Filmmaker’s annual Film Gala event at County Hall, hosted by Cork County Council. Following a workshop last year the Beara students made a short film entitled ‘Royal Tea’, which was showcased along with 19 other short films by young people.

“We really enjoyed our film making workshop. It was a new experience for the majority of us and we had high expectations which were definitely met. We learned a lot about the camera and how to make a film properly – white balance, zoom, focusing and camera angles. It all resulted in our short film called ‘Royal Tea’ which we’re very proud of,” said a member of the group.

The event began with short speeches before the movies were shown. Some were the result of weeklong workshops; others were produced from day workshops like that which the Beara group took part in. All the movies were of a high standard with surprising plot twists.

Amidst stiff competition Beara Community School were awarded joint second. “We were delighted and it made the long journey up worth it! It was the first award for fourth years this year and it won’t be the last!”

The students would like to thank Tina and Gwen at Beara Foroige for hosting their workshop in the Lounge. They would also like to thank Cork County Council and Cork Film Centre for making the programme available to young people in County Cork.
