Deadlines for BSÉ/IFB Short Film Schemes

The deadlines for the Irish Film Board’s flagship short film scheme Signatures and the short documentary scheme Reality Bites have been announced. Applications will be accepted until Friday, 17th July for Signature applications and Reality Bites applications will be accepted until Friday, 7th August.

Signatures is a short film scheme for the making of live-action, fiction films that act as a proving-ground for Irish creative talents which aims to encourage strong, original storytelling, visual flair, and production values appropriate to the big screen.

Reality Bites aims to encourage experimentation and a fresh approach to short non-fiction filmmaking and the Film Board are looking for something new in the use of the documentary form, whether the projects are journalistic or creative, observational or aesthetic, objective or personal.

Submissions in Irish are actively encouraged as films for either scheme can be produced in English or Irish. The successful short films will premiere at the Corona Cork Film Festival next year.
