Limerick City of Culture in partnership with Behind the Scenes have announced the creation of Film Limerick. This project presents an opportunity for new and emerging filmmakers to have their short films produced with both funding and industry support.
Two successful applicants will receive up to €15,000 towards production of their short film. The only stipulation being that filming must take place in Limerick. Each production will also receive advice and support for making the films. The first screening of the two films will take place in Limerick as part of Limerick City of Culture 2014, and the successful filmmakers will be encouraged to submit their films to festivals both in Ireland and abroad.
Film Limerick is now open for entries. The closing date for applications is: Monday 1st September 2014.
