Filmbase/RTÉ Awards 2011

27th January 2011

FilmbaseDetails of the Filmbase/RTÉ Short Film Awards scheme, the longest running short film award scheme for filmmakers in Ireland, have been announced.

This year the awards will provide funding for four short films to be made.

Applications are initially assessed on the basis of anonymous scripts; this means that these awards provide an equal chance to all. In each round a shortlist of approximately ten projects is drawn up. Applicants are then asked to put together a production package and bring together a team for interview. Following the interviews up to two successful applicants will be offered an award per round.

With two rounds in the year, this will lead to up to four new short films being produced in 2011.

The deadline for applications: 5pm on 25th March 2011.

More details on how to apply are on the web site.
