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.
Deadline for submissions: Wednesday 24th October 2018
