The IFB is Now Accepting Applications for its FOCUS SHORTS Short Film Scheme

Posted: 28th February 2018

Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB) is delighted to announce that it is now accepting applications for its FOCUS SHORTS short film scheme.

FOCUS SHORTS is a scheme for the making of live-action, fiction films that act as a proving-ground for Irish creative talents aspiring to write, direct and produce films for the cinema.

It aims to encourage strong, original storytelling, visual flair, and production values appropriate to the big screen. It offers an opportunity for producers, directors and writers to work in a professional environment that will bring their experience up to a higher level and can be seen as a potential stepping stone for future full-length film-makers.

FOCUS SHORTS can be up to 10 minutes in length and receive a budget of up to €50K.

Films may be made in the English or Irish language. If produced in the Irish language, subtitling will be necessary for festivals & sales worldwide.

The deadline is 1pm Fri 8th June 2018.
