Galway City of Film have announced the return of the Short Film Commission Scheme a partnership scheme with RTÉ and Galway Film Centre. Writers are invited to submit a story idea and the best three ideas will be selected and receive a prize of €500 each.

From this, one script will be selected and made into a short film.
New and up-and-coming directors are also invited to submit a short CV to be selected through a competitive process to direct the winning script. The directors will be mentored by an experienced director through prep, casting right through to being supported on set
Producers and production companies are also encouraged to register for the scheme and will be selected on a CV and interview basis. Please note that director and producer teams are also encouraged to apply and will be interviewed together as a team.
