Europe Day 2020 Video competition: Winners announced

To mark Europe Day 2020, we teamed up with the Galway Film Centre and the European Commission Representation in Ireland to launch a competition in search of two educational videos illustrating Ireland’s relationship with Europe.

We selected two informative films from two excellent film editors.

The first video, put together by editor Jack Thornton, looks at Ireland's journey from independence onwards. Jack highlights in the movie how Ireland's membership of the EU and the decision to join the European Economic Community in 1973 helped transform Ireland into a world leader in human rights and equality.

The second video, made by editor Moya Rogers, focuses on the environmental initiatives pioneered by the EU, how they impact Ireland, the challenges we face under global warming and how we can combat them effectively.

The two films can be watched via the links below.
