Only proposals for original, imaginative and aesthetically-driven treatments of arts subjects will be considered. Proposals that offer visually engaging, creative and experimental approaches to their subject will be prioritised.

Projects successfully funded through the Reel Art initiative may be eligible for additional Exhibition Support Funding of up to €12,500 following completion and premiere at ADIFF 2019. This funding is offered by the Arts Council in order to assist film artists in maximising their audiences nationally while also supporting the film artists, who made the films, to work in an international context.

Fionnuala Sweeney, Head of Film for the Arts Council notes “The Reel Art Awards are very important to the Arts Council. They demonstrate clearly the Arts Council’s passionate support for innovative and challenging work from film artists with distinctive creative visions. We hope that the addition of a dedicated exhibition support fund will significantly enhance opportunities for successful film artists to reach their audiences in the most appropriate ways possible for these unique films”.

Film artists interested in applying for Reel Art are invited to attend an information session on the scheme on Tuesday 5th September at 3pm in Filmbase, Curved Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2.

Funding Initiative: Cine4 Development Scheme

TG4, Bord Scannán na hÉireann/Irish Film Board (IFB) and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) are collaborating in the Cine4 Development Scheme, a new joint-funding initiative to support the development and production of feature films in the Irish language. Open to live-action, feature-length, drama film projects in the Irish language, the Cine4 Development Scheme aims to encourage strong storytelling, visual flair and high production values appropriate for the big screen.

The first round of applications for feature-length projects has been reviewed by a panel of assessors from TG4, BSÉ and BAI.  There were 30 applications from 21 companies and assessors remarked on the high quality of the submissions.  Today the successful five companies who will be offered development budgets up to €25,000 have been announced.

The successful companies are Abú Media with the project, ‘Finky’; Danú Media with the project, ‘Saoi’; Fíbín Media with the project ‘Finscéal’; Macalla with the project, ‘Arracht’; and, Wildfire Films with the project ‘Sail Óg Sarah’.

Developed screenplays and production plans from these companies will be assessed further, with two of these chosen for entry into the next appropriate round of the BAI Sound & Vision scheme for production funding.  The two films with budgets of up to €1.2million produced as a result of the Cine4 Development Scheme will be given a full festival life and theatrical release prior to their broadcast premiere on TG4.

TG4 Director General, Alan Esslemont, said: “We were delighted with the very strong interest shown by the independent production sector in this partnership drama initiative with the IFB and the BAI. I’d like to thank all the companies who participated and because the response from the sector was so strong we have decided to announce a second round of the Cine4 Development Scheme immediately.  As one of Ireland’s public service broadcasters, TG4 plays a key role in the fostering of Ireland’s creative economy and we believe that films created through the Cine4 scheme will delight audiences and also open doors internationally for Irish film-makers.”

Commenting on the announcement James Hickey, Chief Executive IFB, said: “Development funding is fundamental to the creative process involved in getting a script to the next level, ready for production. We are delighted to be working on this feature film initiative and I’d like to congratulate the award-winning teams. I am looking forward to working with them and TG4 on the development process which will help bring their creative visions to life. The IFB provides development and production funding for Irish language content across feature film, TV drama, animation and feature documentaries.”

Commenting on the announcement, BAI Chief Executive, Michael O’Keeffe, said: “I would like to congratulate the five successful companies who have received development funding through the Cine4 initiative. Through the administration of the Sound & Vision Broadcasting Funding Scheme, the BAI has been a key partner for Irish language films and drama series. I am confident that the funding provided through Cine4will greatly assist the further development of these five projects and will advance the initiative’s aims in relation to creativity and high production values.”

Because of the strength of the applications from the initial round, TG4, the IFB and the BAI also today are delighted to announce a call out for applications for the second round of the Cine4Development Scheme. The deadline for this second round is October 6, 2017.

REAL SHORTS can be up to 10 minutes in length and have a budget of up to €20k

SHORT STORIES is the final new scheme announced today which invites application across live action and animation projects. Filmmakers are encouraged to use their imagination and deliver succinct, creative and entertaining films. For the first of this series, applicants are invited to present projects on the theme of TRIBES.

SHORT STORIES can be from 3 to 5 minutes in length and have a budget of €15k.

The very successful animation short film scheme FRAMEWORKS, produced in partnership with RTÉ, will remain unchanged.
