Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board Now Accepting Applications for 2018 Frameworks Scheme

Posted: 8th December 2017

Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB) is delighted to announce that it is now accepting applications for the 2018 edition of its FRAMEWORKS short film scheme. An initiative for the support of short animation filmmaking, FRAMEWORKS is the flagship scheme for the Irish animation sector.

The scheme has produced global award-winning films to a consistently high standard including titles such as Alan Holly’s Coda, which was shortlisted for the 2015 Academy Awards®, Nicky Phelan’s Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty, Jack O’Shea’s A Coat Made Dark and Vincent Gallagher’s Second to None; all of which went on to become internationally award-winning films.

Funded by the IFB and RTÉ, projects selected for FRAMEWORKS funding will combine creative exploration with an ability to appeal to a general audience.

The 2018 deadline is Friday, 2 February 2018.
