‘PROJECTIONS FROM ISOLATION’
CALL OUT TO YOUNG WRITERS & ILLUSTRATORS 
 
In these unpredictable times of self-isolation and containment; and with our new, vital stay at home perspective; we want to create a positive and genuine project that celebrates ideas of community, togetherness and a shared love of cinemas.Although we can’t physically visit our local picture house, we can take time to think about why we love cinemas and what we love about them. Perhaps cherished memories of a first visit; or the people we watch movies with; or an important weekly ritual that excites, thrills and astounds us. 
We are inviting young writers and illustrators (aged: 16-25) to submit a piece of work that represents their passion for cinemas and cinema culture. For writers this can be a short essay, story (500 words max.) or a poem. For illustrators this can be a drawing or visual representation; perhaps a portrait of a cinema, a cinema worker or something more experimental and abstract. We plan to celebrate, document and preserve a number of the submitted pieces into a printed work titled ‘Projections from Isolation’. 
This opportunity is open to young writers and illustrators throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Cinemagic will provide new creative opportunities for young people with the launch of a community film project ‘Upload, Download’ supported by The National Lottery Community Fund.From the Summer to Autumn 2020, Cinemagic will deliver a series of online screenings and activities for schools, community groups and home educators to inspire, motivate and educate participants by giving them a platform to access youth focused content to support learning and help develop life skills. There will be a platform to explore social and youth issues to stimulate debate and discussion and the initiative will culminate in participants being given an active role in the Cinemagic 2020 Film Festival later this year.
