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. These three writers will go on to be mentored by an experienced Script Editor to bring their idea from a story outline to a finished script. 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
