Meet the up and coming directors making music videos for exciting Irish artists.

See what’s happening with the five up and coming directors selected for First Cut’s 2021 Youth Music Video Competition (YMVC), an opportunity to make a music video for an exciting Irish musical artist and to receive mentoring from award winning filmmaker Brendan Canty.

Meet the 2021 selected filmmakers as they discuss their creative processes with mentor Brendan Canty and the YMVC programme coordinator. These emerging directors have been paired with the likes of God Knows, Junior Brother, Bantum and Niamh Reagan.

Join us for the first look at this year’s videos which will screen in full at First Cut Youth Film Festival 2022.
