    The festival is delighted to announce the Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, (Ireland) Screenwriting Award 2008.

    Walt Disney Motion Pictures (Ireland) and the Dublin International Film Festival have come together to recognise the centrality of the writer to the filmmaking process. This substantial award will acknowledge and support the creation of original and innovative scripts, through a combination of development funding, as well as extensive promotion within the film industry.

    “Ireland is rightly famed world wide for its storytelling ability – and for its love of cinema.The Dublin International Film Festival’s innovative work is vital to the growth and development of writers and filmmakers in Ireland. The Walt Disney Studios have shot many fine films in Ireland. We have also acquired and distributed many Irish-originated films, which gives us particular pleasure in the Irish office. In teaming with DIFF, WDSMP Ireland is happy to have found a new and exciting way to further encourage quality Irishscreenwriting and filmmaking with this award”.

    Trish Long, Vice President & General Manager. WDSMP
