So if you're into films and always thought you'd like to give film making a try  then March On Film is the perfect competition/festival for you. And don't be worried about not having the right gear, all you need is a smartphone and you've got a camera and editing suite in one!

All films entered are judged by industry professional and everyone who enters has the opportunity to see their film screened in a cinema. There are also film related prizes to be won, with the top prize being a film mentorship package which allows you to be mentored on your next film project by a panel of Ireland's top Film Industry Professionals.
