Call For: Submissions for Celtic International Fund

BBC ALBA (with funding from MG ALBA), S4C, TG4 and Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language
Broadcast Fund (ILBF) have announced the launch of the ‘Celtic International Fund’, which
will run a yearly joint-commissioning round between the indigenous Celtic language television
broadcasters and funders of Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The aim of the ‘Celtic International Fund’ is to promote co-development and then co-production
through Scottish Gaelic, Welsh and Irish, and to encourage a broader European and worldwide
internationalisation of productions which are originally conceived in those Celtic languages. The
Celtic International Fund hopes to provide film-makers with an opportunity to co-develop and coproduce
distinctive, ambitious works to enrich primetime programme schedules, to have a national
impact with audiences in the territories of Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland and seek
to reach audiences worldwide.

This initial call-out encompasses three genres, Factual, Drama and Animation.
