The Irish Cancer Society is inviting young people aged 10-24 years and youth groups to apply for a grant to make and promote a youth-led short film that encourages young people to be smoke free.

This is a cool opportunity to gain some experience in film making and create something that drives change. The goal is to make a two minute film to spread the word about the impact of smoking and encourage young people not to smoke. Why not try your hand at script writing, set design, acting, directing or editing!

Once your film is done and dusted and submitted to the Irish Cancer Society, it will be uploaded to YouTube so that your group can share the messages in your film with young people far and wide.

X-HALE 2017 also includes an all new opportunity for your group to maximise the impact of your film with an online and community campaign. If you are a youth worker you can attend training that will help you develop and roll out an action plan.

Read more information on the Irish Cancer Society’s website The closing date for grant applications is Wednesday 1st March 2017.
