Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB) has announced its involvement in this year’s 3 Student Media Awards, which will take place in the Tripod on Tuesday, April 15th.

The IFB is official sponsor of the Film Script of the Year category, which is awarded to the most original, well-written, imaginative script showing the most insight to the cinematic form.

Entrants were asked to submit a short film script which was then subjected to the same rigorous process as scripts submitted to the IFB for funding. After being read by an external reader and short listed, each entrant received a readers report which delivered professional and constructive feedback.

The final shortlist is:

  • Fishy Tale by Conor O’Kelly
  • Baby Bump by Emma Keaveney
  • Fiddle De Dum Stores by Lorraine Harton
  • Square Eyes by Eoin Maher
  • Motive by Denis Ryan
