Donegal Short Film Bursary
THE Donegal Film Office
Short Film Bursary is a creative response to film makers living and working in Donegal.
A grant of €10,000 will be awarded to a filmmaker
towards the cost of the production of a short drama or
documentary film of 10-12 minutes duration to be shot in
Donegal in 2023. The bursary aims to foster talent,
support creatives and increase activity in filmmaking
in the county.
'Atlantic Roar’ is a short film shot entirely on the
Inishowen Peninsula, using a local crew. It describes the little things that we would miss
about living in Donegal.
Applications are being
sought from film makers who have a script that has been
developed, seen by a director, and has had input from a
producer. The Film Office is looking for original,
entertaining stories by talented filmmakers who, if
selected, must set and shoot their project in County

Office wishes to support indigenous filmmakers in
Donegal. We are delighted to see film makers choosing
Donegal as their home and are excited to see the growth
of the sector”.
