Calling All Filmmakers! New Deadline For Signatures Scheme Announced

7th Aug 2012
The deadline for the Irish Film Board's flagship short film scheme SIGNATURES has been announced. Applications will now be accepted until Friday, September 21st.

SIGNATURES is a short film scheme for the making of live-action, fiction films that act as a proving-ground for Irish creative talents which aims to encourage strong, original storytelling, visual flair, and production values appropriate to the big screen.

Previous Signature shorts included Foxes which was officially selected for this years SXSW and Tribeca film festivals, Two Hearts which has received a nomination for the European Film Awards and Pentecost which was nominated for an Academy Award earlier this year.

The scheme is an opportunity for producers, directors and writers to work in a professional environment that will allow them to further their experience.

We actively encourage submissions in Irish as films for this scheme can be produced in either the English or Irish language. The successful short films will premiere at the Corona Cork Film Festival next year.

All applications for the scheme should be sent with the reference REF: SIGNATURES on the envelope to:

Bord Scannan na hEireann/the Irish Film Board,
Queensgate,
23 Dock Road,
Galway.
