Cinemagic have launched their inaugural “Young Filmmaker Festival Challenge”!

Young Filmmakers will be tasked with creating a new film and have it screened, all within the duration of this year’s festival! Completed films will be screened at a Young Filmmaker Panel event at 1pm on 31st October, in the Ulster Museum, Belfast. After the screening, the panel will help select the winning film!
