Screen Training Ireland will be hosting a Script-To-Screen Masterclass with The Young Offenders on Thursday 8th September in Bow Street.  The panel includes the films writer/director/producer Peter Foott, producer Julie Ryan, actors Chris Walley, Alex Murphy and Hilary Rose along with Wildcard’s Managing Director Patrick O’Neill.

The interactive masterclass will explore the different stages of making The Young Offenders from early script right through to production and discussion will deal with the process and challenges of developing, funding and distributing a feature film in the current industry landscape.

Inspired by Ireland’s biggest cocaine seizure of €440 million off the coast of Cork in 2007, The Young Offenders follows two Cork inner-city teenagers, Conor and Jock, as they embark on a 160km road trip on stolen bikes in the hopes of finding an unrecovered bale of cocaine.

The film was shot in some of the most iconic locations around Cork city and along the Wild Atlantic Way last summer and will open in the majority of Irish cinemas on Friday 16th September (with previews on the 10th and 11th) making it the widest release of an Irish film so far this year.

The Script-to-Screen Masterclass will take place on Thursday, September 8th from 2pm to 4pm in Bow Street, Dublin 7.  To find out more visit the Screen Training Ireland website:
