Donegal Film Office Short Film Bursary Award 2022

Donegal Film Office has secured funding from Creative Ireland for a second year for a Short Film Bursary Award in Donegal.

The Donegal Film Office Short Film Bursary is a creative response to showcase film makers living and working in Donegal.  A grant of €10,000 will be awarded to a filmmaker towards the cost of the production of a short drama or documentary film of 10-12 min duration to be shot in Donegal in 2022.  The Bursary aims to foster talent, support creatives, and increase activity in filmmaking in the County.  

 Applications are being called from film makers who have a script that has been developed, seen by a Director, and has had input from a Producer. We are looking for original, entertaining stories by talented filmmakers who, if selected, must set, and shoot their project in County Donegal.

Aideen Doherty Donegal Film Office added,

“The Film Office wishes to support indigenous filmmakers in Donegal. We are delighted to see film makers choosing Donegal as their home and are excited to see the growth of the sector.    We are grateful to the National Creative Ireland Programme 2017- 2022 for once again affording the county this opportunity”.

The closing date for receipt of applications is set at 4pm on Friday 13th May 2022
