Bord Scannán na hÉireann/ the Irish Film Board have announced the new deadline for submissions for the next round of the Reality Bites. Applications will be accepted until Friday July 5th.
Reality Bites aims to encourage experimentation and a fresh approach to short non-fiction filmmaking. We 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. Documentaries can be produced in either the English or Irish language.
The Reality Bites scheme will provide funding for up to three films between 10 and 12 minutes in duration.
