Oscailt 07

27th June 2007 by Maura McHugh

The deadline for application to the 2007 Oscailt scheme is Friday July 13th. Co-funded by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/The Irish Film Board and TG4, the scheme wants to encourage quality and innovative filmmaking in Ireland through the Irish language. Films between 10 – 25 minutes can be financed, up to a maximum budget of €290,000.

The scheme insists that the writer, director, producer and crew involved are legally resident in Ireland, and that each project has a separate producer and director. A language advisor will be employed if the director is not fluent enough to work through the Irish language. The application form indicates the materials needed for the submission, and can be downloaded from the web site.
