Call For: Applications for EFP Producers on the Move 2019

Call for Applications: EFP Producers on the Move 2019

Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland is now seeking applications from Irish producers who wish to be considered as the Irish representative for the 2019 EFP Producers on the Move programme held each year at the Cannes Film Festival.

Each year, 20 up and coming producers from 20 different countries from throughout Europe are selected to participate in Producers on the Move at the Cannes Film Festival. The four-day programme aims at connecting enterprising young producers with international potential co-production partners and strengthening their industry networks. The programme is underpinned by a digital promotion campaign and a press campaign in the international trades, creating visibility and opportunity for the producers.

The programme is open to 20 producers from 20 different European countries. The interested producers/production companies must have completed at least one international co-production.  The final selection of the 20 participants is based on a point system which considers the following criteria:

  • the producer’s experience in an international co-production (at least one international co-production) is a pre-requisite. The selection process favours producers who have been majority producers.
    If candidates were the majority producers in more than three international co-productions, they, unfortunately, are too experienced for PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE
  • the producer’s feature length film(s) have had a theatrical release and /or a VoD / SVoD / DVD / TV release outside of the production countries involved;
  • the producer has had a feature length film screened in the international section at a major festival;
  • the producer’s feature length film was awarded Best Film in the producer’s home country ie recipient of a national film award;
  • the producer has a strong project suitable for an international co-production.

Previous Irish Producers on the Move include Alan Maher (Song of Granite), Katie Holly (Vita & Virginia), John Keville and Conor Barry (The Hole in the Ground), Juliette Bonass (A Date for Mad Mary), Rebecca O’Flanagan (Papi Chulo) and Macdara Kelleher (Black 47) to name but a few.

If you are interested in participating in Producers on the Move 2019, please address your email to Louise Ryan, Marketing & Communications Manager, marketing@screenireland.ie with the following information by close on business on Tuesday, 12 March:

  1. Letter of motivation, i.e. what you would hope to gain from the scheme and why you would like to take part
  2. Project description of the film in development / financing — including synopsis and director statement (if director attached)
  3. Finance plan for this project

TG4 & Údarás na Gaeltachta Launch a New Media Training Development Scheme

 

TG4 and Údarás na Gaeltachta have launched a new Media Training Development Scheme. The aim of the scheme is to support production companies to develop the skills and talent of their production staff and in doing so encouraging an emerging generation of Irish speaking talent to work in the sector.

 

TG4 and Údarás na Gaeltachta are now accepting expressions of interest from Independent Productioon Companies who are interested in participating in the Media Training Development Scheme.

 

The project is divided into two initiatives, a Work Experience Scheme, aimed at production companies who would like to invest in developing new talent in the sector by giving  practical experience to a graduate or new entrant in an area where the company sees a gap in expertise. Skills areas which might be considered could include Editors, Directors, Researchers, Assistant Producers and Production Development Staff.

 

The Upskilling Bursary Scheme is aimed at professionals  in the industry who wish to upskill or develop their area of expertise.  The bursaries will support specific courses or  training initiatives, which lead to general career development .

 

Director General of TG4Alan Esslemont, has welcomed the announcement, saying:

 

“The nurturing and development of the Irish language audiovisual sector is an integral part of TG4’s strategy. TG4 invests over €23m a year in the independent sector and an important aspect in growing the sector is the fostering of a highly skilled workforce, which will in turn bolster the production and creative industries, particularly in the regions”.

 

Chief Executive of Údarás na GaeltachtaMícheál Ó hÉanaigh, adds:

 

“We are delighted to be working on this scheme in collaboration with TG4 and the independent production sector. Údarás na Gaeltachta has played a central role in the development of the creative digital industries for many years and we are hopeful that this innovative and dynamic scheme will significantly enhance the stream of talent and new skills coming to the fore in the Irish language audiovisual and digital media spheres in 2019.  This initiative complements the Údarás’s strategy of supporting the development of training programmes and education to increase the level of skills and employability in the Gaeltacht”.

 

TG4 and Údarás na Gaeltachta will both be making a significant investment of €160,000 each in this pilot scheme, in addition to the input from the independent sector which will create training and employment opportunities.

Call For: Art Submissions Being Accepted for K-FEST 2K19

Visual arts submissions are now being accepted for K-FEST, which takes place in Killorglin, County Kerry, on Friday, May 31, through Sunday, June 2, 2019. A submission form, which requires images of proposed artwork, photo of the artist, biography, and artist statement, among other items, may be found at www.kfest.ie. Submissions costs just €10 and are due at 6 p.m. Friday, March 8, 2019.

In its seventh consecutive year, K-FEST will once again take over the town of Killorglin, exhibiting approximately 100 visual artists across all disciplines, including paint, print, sculpture, performance, textiles, fashion, graphic design, photography, film, and audio-visual. Selected artists show their work in curated, bespoke pop-up galleries throughout the town’s disused commercial and private spaces. Since 2013, K-Fest has housed over 600 visual artists and approximately 3,000 original works of art. With an attendance of more than 10,000 over the June Bank Holiday weekend, K-FEST affords new and emerging artists from Ireland and beyond the ability to showcase their work to a diverse audience, providing opportunities for patronage, partnerships, and community building with fellow artists and local residents.

All submissions selected for participation in K-FEST will automatically be entered to win the Screaming Pope Prize VI, one of Ireland’s most unique arts awards, exclusively organised by artists for artists. The prize is given for a single outstanding work of visual or performing art each year during the festival.

                “In 2018, we saw a performance piece win the Screaming Pope Prize, and we generally had more performance art on exhibit, moving K-FEST into the realm of a truly multi-discipline arts festival. I hope we continue to see as much varied work in 2019, as each work of art elicits a different experience and drives interactions between artists and attendees that really heighten the sense of community and inclusivity during the weekend. We may even see a new gallery or two pop up in 2019, which always gives the festival — and the works on display — a new flavour.”

Details regarding submissions may be found at www.kfest.ie/submissions. For more information on the submission process, contact Neil Browne, Artistic Director, at submissions@kfest.ie. For general information about K-FEST, send inquiries to: info@kfest.ie. #iamkfest #kfest2k19 #killorglinisthecanvas

K-FEST, a dynamic arts festival with an emphasis on emerging artists, uses unoccupied spaces in Killorglin, transforming vacant retail outlets, deserted buildings, and even domestic homes into curated bespoke pop-up galleries and venues. Over the course of the June Bank Holiday weekend, K-FEST hosts more than 60 events in addition to a gallery trail, including live music performances by dozens of bands and musicians, as well as spoken word, drama, comedy, short films, street entertainment, and activities for kids and families, all culminating with the Screaming Pope Prize ceremony, in which the festival awards a single outstanding work of visual art.

Pitch Pilot Workshop

The Creative Europe Desk MEDIA Office Galway, in association with EDN (The European Documentary Network), will organise a Pitch Pilot Workshop in Galway next April.

Pitch Pilot Workshop

The EDN Pitch Pilot Workshop is an intensive three-day workshop focusing on the development of pitch pilots for documentary projects aimed at the International Market.  During these three days the selected teams will re-edit their pilots and make crucial decisions for the visual approach to their stories.

The Workshop is tailored for 3-5 projects and 10-12 observers and will be conducted in collaboration with Jesper Osmund an experienced Pilot editor.

The first morning of the Workshop on April 2nd will consist of a general information session on how to create a great Pitch Pilot. Using concrete examples of successful Pitch Pilots this plenary session will be presented in in collaboration with Ove Rishøj Jensen, EDN Film & Media Consultant. This half-day presentation will be open to all Documentary Filmmakers or anyone interested in Creative Documentary.

IMRO and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, in association with The Contemporary Music Centre (CMC) and Screen Training Ireland will bring together emerging Irish filmmakers and composers to work on a collaborative project during 2018/2019.

This initiative will provide emerging filmmakers and composers with an invaluable opportunity to enhance their skills through hands-on experience in a vital aspect of film post-production. It is also a rare opportunity to have a score composed and recorded for full orchestra.

The focus of the project is a one day recording session in RTÉ studios in March 2019 with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra recording original scores for short film submissions selected for the initiative. Programme participants will be further supported through mentoring sessions and workshops with leading industry specialists.

Applications are currently being sought from interested composers and filmmakers who would like to participate in this programme. Due to the limited number of places available we have set down a number of qualifying criteria for those wishing to take part.

Composers

2. The ability to score for full orchestra is essential.
3. The ability to work to a tight deadline is also essential.

Filmmakers
Submitted film projects for the initiative should require original scored music totalling between three and five minutes. Ideally the film should have a maximum duration of 10 – 15 minutes and should be close to or have completed picture lock. Once selected, the filmmakers will work with a composer, who has been selected through the process, who will create a full score for the film to be performed and recorded by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.

All categories of film will be considered e.g. live-action drama, animation, documentary, experimental, etc. Ideally, the film projects submitted should be close to completion on editing. The use of temp tracks or “mood music” where score is required is allowed but not required.
