Fresh Blood

The night is growing longer, it must be time for Fresh Blood! This year’s filmmaking workshop took place in Limerick during the October mid-term break. Keep an eye on social media for updates.


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, 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.
