Filmbase announced the shortlist for the second round of the Filmbase/RTÉ Short Film Awards 2012.
Ten projects were selected out of over 300 applications so, as always, it has been a difficult job making the selection. All ten teams will now compete for the two awards available. The Filmbase/RTÉ Short Film Awards offers €10,000
cash toward the budget as well as up to €10,000 worth of production and post-production facilities rental from Filmbase. Running now for over two decades, this scheme is the longest running short film funding scheme in Ireland and has funded over 100 short films in that time. Details of the next round of the award will be announced in the coming weeks.
