A fund of €10,000 will be awarded to the successful applicant towards the cost of producing a 10-12min short drama or documentary film in the county.
In 2022 the focus is on a strong creative connection with Kerry. At least one of each application’s core creative team (Writer/Director/Producer) must be from or living in the county. Filmmakers will be assisted by Screen Kerry, Kerry ETB’s Film Development Office, in sourcing locations and local crew, and via Kerry College – Monavalley Campus, Tralee, a centre of excellence for film training. The deadline for receipt of applications is 5pm on Friday April 15th.
