Wexford County Council Arts Office Announces New €10,000 Short Film Fund Award - 'Wexford Stories'
13 Jun 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Wexford County Council Arts Office in association with ‘Bodecii Film’ has announced a call for application to its new Film Fund initiative. The aim of this annual award is to provide funding and support to filmmakers looking to develop ambitious and creative short films based in the County Wexford region.

 

The focus of this award for 2018-2019 is on filmaker/writer collaborations and is titled - ‘Wexford Stories’.

‘Wexford Stories’ is a unique opportunity to encourage directors/producers nationwide to team with 1 of the 10 Wexford Writers who have previously taken part in ‘Wexford Screen Writers Professional Development Workshops’ run by the Arts Office and Bodecii Film over the past year. The outcome of this intensive screen writing programme, where the writers were mentored by film industry professionals, are ten short screenplays that create exciting, dynamic and engaging screen stories.

Funding will be available through the scheme to support one short film with a budget of up to €10,000 funded through Wexford County Council Arts Office. The award also consists of project management support from Bodecii film (based in Wexford) as well as €1,800 towards equipment hire with film lighting company ‘Teach Solais’ 

Wexford Stories welcomes application from a diversity of filmmakers nationwide with a passionate vision who wish to collaborate with the Wexford writers. The goal is to open the door to emerging Wexford writers to team with established and emerging Irish directors and producers.

Directors and Producers who have not previously attended the SDGI/Wexford County Council networking events for director/ writers held in Dublin in April 2018 and would like to find out more or access the 10 scripts, please contact terry@bodecii.com

Wexford County Council’s purpose in promoting this award is to support the 10 emerging Wexford writers who took part in the professional development workshops and filmmakers nationwide to make vibrant and compelling films and to increase awareness of the variety and flexibility of locations available in the region. The Arts Department of Wexford County Council is supporting this opportunity to support employment in the film making industry in County Wexford
