FRAMEWORKS is an established scheme for the making of animated short films which BSÉ/IFB considers to be so successful in stimulating ground-breaking new work from Irish animators that it intends to continue the scheme in its present form.

Projects selected for funding will combine creative exploration with an ability to appeal to a broad audience.

The scheme is co-funded by BSÉ/IFB, the Arts Council and RTÉ and the new deadline for applications is April 23rd 2010.

Parameters of the Scheme

  • Number of films: up to 6 per year
  • Duration: maximum 6 minutes
  • Budget per film: maximum €50,000
  • Format:

    • Origination using any technique or format
    • Delivery on digi-beta and HD Cam
    • Further funding to cover costs of 35mm prints may be provided where a film obtains a bona fide theatrical release in Ireland or is invited to a major international film festival, subject to BSÉ/IFB regulations in force at the time

Information on the scheme’s guidelines and how to apply are available on the Irish Film Board’s web site.
