The deadline for the Irish Film Board short animation scheme Frameworks has been announced. Applications will be accepted until Friday, 20th April.

Frameworks is an established scheme for the making of animated short films which has been incredibly successful in stimulating ground-breaking new work from Irish animators. Projects selected for funding will combine creative exploration with an ability to appeal to a broad audience.

Irish animation has been drawing much international acclaim in recent years with Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty being nominated for a Best Short Animation Academy Award, The Rooster, The Crocodile and The Night Sky being nominated for a prestigious ASIFA Hollywood Annie Award and Old Fangs receiving critical acclaim at the renowned Sundance, Annecy and the London film festivals.

The Frameworks scheme is co-funded by BSÉ/IFB, the Arts Council and RTÉ.

Films may be made in Irish or English with Irish applications being actively encouraged.

For more information on making an application and to download an application form visit the Funding Programmes section of the Irish Film Board website.

A Bheochantóirí!! Spriocdháta Nua Frameworks Á Fógairt

Tá áthas ar Bord Scannán na hÉireann spiocdháta nua a fhógairt do Frameworks – scéim na ngearrscannán beochana. Glacfaí le hiarratais go dtí an Aoine, 20ú Aibreán. Is scéim bhunaithe rathúil í Frameworks do léiriú gearrscannáin bheochana, atá ag spreagadh saothair nuálacha ó bheochantóirí Éireannacha.

Beidh taiscéalaíocht chruthaitheach i gceist leis na tionscnaimh a roghnófaí, agus ba chóir go mbeidh sé ar a gcumas acu lucht féachana leathan a tharraingt. Tá clú idirnáisiúnta bainte amach ag beochan Éireannach sna blianta beaga anuas, le hainmniúchán do Dhuais an Acadaimh – An Gearrscannán Beochana Is Fearr faighte ag Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty a stiúraigh Nicky Phelan agus a scríobh Kathleen O’Rourke. Moladh freisin The Rooster, The Crocodile and the Night Sky, a scríobh agus a stiúraigh Padraig Fagan, don ghradam suntasach Annie de chuid ASIFA Hollywood. Taispeánadh Old Fangs de chuid Adrien Merigeau ag an bhféile cháiliúil Sundance, agus ag Féile Scannán Annecy agus Féile Scannán Londan anuraidh, le moladh óna léirmheastóirí.

Tá Scéim Frameworks maoinithe ag BSÉ, An Chomhairle Ealaíon agus RTÉ. Is féidir scannáin a dhéanamh as Gaeilge nó i mBéarla, agus cuirimid fáilte mhór go háirithe roimh iarratais as Gaeilge. Le tuilleadh eolais a fháil ar conas iarratas a dhéanamh agus chun foirm iarratais a íoslódáil, téigh chuig Clár Maoiniú Frameworks ar laithreán gréasáin BSÉ.
