Limerick City of Culture in partnership with Behind the Scenes have announced details of their 2014 Bursary Award, ‘Film Limerick’.
With less than two weeks remaining, entries are still open to compete for the bursary and opportunity that Film Limerick presents. The award will be given to two successful applicants who will each receive €15,000 towards the cost of their production. This funding initiative aims to foster creative and resourceful filmmaking in Limerick. They are looking for original, entertaining stories by talented filmmakers, who, if selected – must set and shoot their project in Limerick City or County.
Project ManagerRonan Cassidy explained, ‘These productions will showcase the fantastic resources Limerick has to offer to both established and emerging filmmakers and help to cement Limerick as a film producing hub. I look forward to working on the production of the two short films with the successful applicants. In addition to the funding of the two short films we will be providing training, talks and workshops to help nurture and encourage local film talent to flourish. This project offers a chance to continue to develop a creative industry that Limerick can be proud of.”
