X-Hale is an initiative developed by the Irish Cancer Society to encourage young people to take action on the issue of smoking in their own communities.

As part of X-Hale, the Irish Cancer Society hosts the annual X-Hale Youth Awards which sees youth groups from around the country enter community action projects and film projects around the issue of smoking. A number of youth groups from across the country attended the filming workshop in preparation of their film entries to learn about film producing and editing.

All of the youth groups involved in the film and community action workshops received grants from the Society to develop their project. This year 36 groups received funding from the Society and a further 15 received training support.
