Reality Bites 08

22nd April 2008

The Irish Film Board has announced the deadline for its short film scheme Reality Bites as Friday, June 13th.

Reality Bites aims to encourage experimentation and a fresh approach to short non-fiction filmmaking. We are looking for something new in the use of the documentary form, whether the projects are journalistic or creative, observational or aesthetic, objective or personal. Documentaries can be produced in either the English or Irish language.

The successful short films will premiere at the Corona Cork Film Festival next year.

Information on how to apply is available on the web site.
