Dublin Port and the Little Museum of Dublin have announced a new commissioning project in association with Screen Ireland to give artists and filmmakers a unique platform to showcase their work at the museum in telling the story of Dublin.
The winning project will receive €20,000 to produce a new short film, which will be seen by over 100,000 visitors to the Little Museum in 2019.
Up to eight minutes long, the “Port Short” will celebrate the city of Dublin, highlighting aspects of our culture and heritage that separate the city from other capitals in Europe. Both enlightening and entertaining, the film will enhance public understanding of the city’s evolution as well as provide an amusing introduction to Dublin today.
To apply for Port Short 2019, new, experienced and up-and-coming filmmakers are invited to submit expressions of interest as part of a competitive process no later than 5pm on September 13th, 2018.
Applicants are required to submit the following:

- An approximate budget and timeline for the project
- Information about the team involved, e.g. a CV (max. 2 additional pages per individual)
