Action School of Film


Action School of Film facilitates filmmaking courses in schools, clubs and summer camps. Formerly called North West Film School, based at Carrick Cineplex, Carrick on Shannon, we specialise in Transition Year modules, introducing young people to the art of filmmaking and giving them the opportunity to create their own films.
Since North West Film School was established in 2009 it has quickly made its name as a leading youth filmmaking organisation in the country.  Films made by students have traveled the world and been awarded prestigious honours both at home and abroad, including the ‘Golden Clip’ (first place) at the Berlin International Youth Film Festival 2010; ‘Best Group Film’ at the Fresh Film Festival, 2010 and 2011; Second Place in the United Nations PERL film competition and inclusion in UN conferences on Sustainable Living (2011) and Official Selection for such international festivals as the Seoul International Youth Film Festival (2010 & 2011) and the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival (2011).
