Fresh International Film Festival, RTÉ, and Screen Ireland proudly announce

April 29, 2024, Leaving Certificate student Fiachra Cotter O’Culachain from Dublin was crowned Ireland’s Young Filmmaker of the Year 2024 at Fresh International Film Festival, for his short film IVY. This coming-of-age film follows Hugh, a teen facing the struggles of life. Life for Hugh is pretty good, but it becomes that much better when he meets Ivy, the new girl next door. As he embarks on another summer of fun with his friends. Hailing from Dundrum, Fiachra wrote, directed and edited this fantastically shot film with beautiful cinematography and natural performances from his young ensemble cast. This is Fiachra’s third time entering Ireland’s Young Filmmaker of The Year. Last year, he crafted a film focusing on the COVID pandemic. The inspiration for his latest film, “Ivy,” stems from his own experiences with teenage romance. Already looking ahead, Fiachra is planning to shoot his next film in August.

Hothouse

The Hothouse Project at Fresh with RTÉ and Screen Ireland responds to the needs of advanced and award winning young filmmakers who work alone or in isolation and it aims to provide an intensive filmmaking experience. This programme is designed to challenge and advance film knowledge and skill. In the past Lance Daly, Dearbhla Walsh, Donal Foreman, John Butler, Sarah Gavron, Robbie Ryan and Jim Sheridan have given masterclasses as part of this programme.

The aim of the Hothouse is to support and promote the next generation of filmmakers by giving young independent makers a safe creative space in which to develop ideas and projects.
The films will launch at the Dublin International Film Festival on Friday 1st March 2024 and will be screened on RTÉ Player thereafter.
