Donegal Short Film Bursary Award 23.02.23

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 Donegal.

Aideen Doherty, Donegal Film Office, added: “The Film 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”.

Details of the bursary and application form are available on the Donegal Film Office website (under the funding section) www.donegalfilmoffice.ie or by emailing filmoffice@donegalcoco.ie .

The closing date for receipt of applications is 4pm on 31st March 2023.
