Frameworks Animated Short Film Scheme – Applications Now Open, Updated Guidelines
The deadline for the Irish Film Board short animation scheme Frameworks, now in its 21st edition, has been announced. Applications will be accepted until 1pm Friday, 11th March 2016.
Those wishing to apply should first read the updated guidelines here.
Frameworks is an established scheme for the making of animated short films which has been incredibly successful in stimulating ground-breaking new work from Irish animators. Projects selected for funding will combine creative exploration with an ability to appeal to a broad audience.
Recent successes for previous Frameworks projects include A Coat Made Dark directed by Jack O’Shea, which has been officially selected for this year’s Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival, and Unhinged directed by Tom Caulfield which won the prize for Best First Animation at the Galway Film Fleadh.
The Frameworks scheme is co-funded by BSÉ/IFB and RTÉ.
