Call for Media Proposals to Support Coverage of Development Issues

Call for Media Proposals to Support Coverage of Development Issues

Media professionals are now invited to apply for funding under the winter round of the Simon Cumbers Media Fund, an initiative of Irish Aid aimed at increasing public understanding of global development issues.

The Simon Cumbers Media Fund was established in memory of the late Irish journalist Simon Cumbers, who was killed in Saudi Arabia while working with the BBC in 2004. The aim of the Fund is to promote more and better quality coverage of development issues in the Irish media and, by extension, to promote a greater understanding of the work of Irish Aid, the Government’s programme for overseas development.

Media professionals and students are invited to submit proposals to cover a development issue, which will involve travel to a developing country. The Fund is open to all media disciplines and encourages proposals that promote positive impressions of developing countries across areas such as health, education, environment, business and sport. Projects that explore the issue of hunger and / or that are relevant to the Millennium Development Goals will be favoured by the judging panel, as will projects that focus on Irish Aid’s partner countries in Africa and Asia.

The deadline for receipt of applications is 5pm on Friday, 16th September 2011.

Two information workshops for media professionals interested in applying to the Simon Cumbers Media Fund will take place over the coming weeks – the first in Dublin on 5th September at the Irish Aid Information and Volunteering Centre, Upper O’Connell Street, and the second in Cork on 6th September at the Clarion Hotel, Lapps Quay.

 

The Simon Cumbers Media Fund has two funding rounds each year: one in summer and one in winter. Former successful applicants have gone on to travel to – and report on issues in – countries such as Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, Lesotho, Timor Leste, Vietnam, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Previous Simon Cumbers Media Fund projects have also won and been shortlisted for a number of prestigious awards and festivals, including the Clarion Awards, the PPI Radio Awards, the Corona Fastnet Short Film Festival, the New York Festival, the Western Development Commission John Healy Award and the One World Media Awards.

 

Full details on registering for the Simon Cumbers Media Fund workshops – and on how to apply to the Fund – are available at www.simoncumbersmediafund.ie.  For information on Irish Aid, see www.irishaid.gov.ie.

  1. FULL COMMISSION – Pitch a great concept for a film (or series of 3 or 5 films as a pack) by 31st July 2011 and you could qualify for: up to £500 for your production, plus full production insurance, access to professional studio facilities, camera equipment and mentoring assistance to help to create your project(s).

HANDY HINT – You may even already have a completed (longer) short that could be reduced, distilled and purified into the 15 Second Format… or maybe you have some totally awesome footage that just needs chopped into a micro-short? There is no limit on the number of films you can submit.

FINAL DEADLINE FOR ALL COMPLETED FILMS (commissioned or submitted) – 1st October 2011 Unlike other film festivals we encourage you to contact us in advance to discuss your projects before submission.

Dingle Film Festival offers €5,000 in cash prizes for Irish language Short Film Proposal

dingle-web
Dingle Film Festival offers €5,000 in cash prizes for Irish language Short Film Proposal

The Dingle Film Festival is delighted to announce ‘Físín’, a call to filmmakers to submit a short film proposal in the Irish language. The competition has a cash prize fund of €5,000 and €1,000 worth of lighting equipment hire sponsored by Cian de Buitléar’s company Teach Solas.

Five filmmakers will be selected to travel to the next Dingle Film Festival which opens on St. Patrick’s day 2011. Each of the five will be treated as festival guests and will be given the opportunity to pitch their proposal to a panel and a live audience in The Phoenix Cinema during the festival. A wonderful panel has been put together, including the iconic Eamon de Buitléar, local writer Louise Ní Fhiannachta, who now writes for TG4, local writer Marina Ní Dhubháin and head of Ealain Na Gaeltahta, Micheál Ó Fearraigh.

The opportunity has been put together by the festival to encourage the writing of film scripts in the Irish language. Tor Cotton, one of the festival sponsors came up with the idea:

“As an ardent supporter of the Dingle Film Festival I asked Maurice (the festival director) why he wasn’t screening much, if ever, ‘as gaeilge’ in order to reflect the festival’s location in the Corcha Dhuibhne Gaeltacht. The reply I got saddened and alarmed me, it couldn’t be true. Were there really virtually no films being shot through Irish? There must be some and I am sure there are some, only a few mind.” Tor went on to say “Just as I am shy to speak and thus progress my Irish, it may be that others are cautious about taking the risk to develop their films through Irish. However unlike my toe in the water of the language, the risk of making a bad film is equal in either tongue, I hope to speak more Irish and to see more films ‘as gaeilge’. It seemed a logical conclusion to be constructive rather than critical and set up a competition to encourage film making through Irish.”

The competition is aimed at people who combine a special interest in film alongside a commitment to the Irish language. The festival is keen to see proposals from all local dialects. This opportunity is open to any individual or group from transition year students right through to professionals. The application form is available to download at www.dinglefilmfestival.com or you can email fisin@dinglefilmfestival.com. The closing date for entries is January 31st 2011.

The winning pitch at the festival will receive €3,000 cash prize and €1,000 worth of rental lighting equipment and will return to Dingle with their finilised film in 2012. . Four of the pitches will receive a cash prize of €500 and each filmmaker will receive a personalised commemorative leather notebook designed by Conor Holden.

The Dingle Film Festival, home to The Gregory Peck Award and who’s guests have included Gabriel Byrne, Cillian Murphy, Jim Sheridan, Sir Alan Parker, Saoirse Ronan & Sarah Miles, will have its 5th edition next March opening on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th and running until Sunday March 20th 2011.

KERRY FILM FESTIVAL RECEIVES IN EXCESS OF 500 SHORT FILMS ENTRIES

The Kerry Film Festival (KFF), which is celebrating 11 years of bringing film to the people of Kerry, was inundated with short films for its upcoming festival. 541 films were submitted for the short film competition, with films coming from 38 different countries across the globe. The increase in submissions is testament to the work being done by the festival in both the promotion of Irish films abroad and the promotion of short-films in general.


KFF has partnered with a number of film festivals in other countries and the approach has paid dividends with the festival securing more entries than in previous years. The partnerships have also provided a perfect way for KFF to screen Irish films abroad.


“This will be the eleventh year of the Kerry Film Festival and both the quantity and quality of the films has increased every year,” said Jason O’ Mahony, Festival Director. “We received 541 short films this year, which is up almost 20% on last year. We’ve had films from as far away as Argentina and South Africa and as close to home as Cork and Killarney and we’re absolutely thrilled with the response.”


Festival staff now face the difficult task of whittling those 541 films down to the 60 or 70 films that will screen as part of the festival. “It’s part of the fun of the job,” says O’ Mahony. “With such a huge number of entries the selection process will take some time but it’s already well under way. We received close to 200 films from Ireland with more than 300 films coming from abroad so competition for places will be very tough, particularly given the quality of the films. It seems to rise every year!”

Films that are selected will play during the Kerry Film Festival which runs from October 30th to November 6th this year. Screenings take place all over Kerry but Siamsa Tíre in Tralee will be the main hub of the festival.


“We’re very lucky in our partnership with Siamsa,” adds O’ Mahony. “It’s an amazing venue and filmmakers absolutely love to have their work screened there. The venue, screen and sound system are top-class. And the staff is always so helpful and friendly that we’re really looking forward to all the screenings that will take place in Siamsa this year!”


Once the films have been selected by the festival panel, they will compete with one another for a number of prizes that will be judged by both festival attendees and a select group of film adjudicators.


“We’ve lined up a stellar panel of adjudicators to help select the winning films. James Marsh, the Oscar winning director of ‘Man on Wire’ and Tomm Moore, the Oscar nominated director of ‘The Secret of Kells’, will adjudicate the documentary and animated short films respectively.”


The Kerry Film Festival gives audience members a chance to see films by up and coming directors as well as an opportunity to interact with some of the most established names in the world. The festival also screens a number of features, while its education programme alone saw more than 2,000 students from all parts of Kerry attend screenings in 2009.


“Last year was a huge success, in terms of both the numbers of screenings and the audience that came,” added O’ Mahony. “But we’re pretty confident that 2010 can even top that.”

BSÉ/IFB Short Shorts Deadline Announced

Bord Scannán na hÉireann/The Irish Film Board have announced a call for submissions for the next round of the successful Short Shorts scheme. The new deadline for the scheme is Friday, 8th May 2009.

Short Shorts funds up to seven, 3–5 minute films and aims to encourage the making of ultra-short films which are innovative, provocative or in some way risky and rule-breaking. The scheme was modified last year so that the films have to conform to a particular genre each year.

The theme for this years short films, whether live action or animated is ‘Films with No Dialogue.’ This does not mean silent films, but rather films where the soundtrack can contain anything except audible dialogue. The Mr. Bean television series and related feature film is a good example of this type of genre. It is hoped that having the shorts packaged together under this specific genre will allow the IFB to market the Short Shorts more effectively internationally.

The successful short films will premiere at the Cork Film Festival in October. For more information please click here.
