David Crean, Drama Development Executive, RTÉ:
“The Short Film Scheme fits perfectly with RTÉ Drama’s strategy for uncovering and nurturing new writing, producing and directing talent. 2016 gave a great opportunity to Jacinta Owens and Cara Holmes and we’re excited about seeing a new, original short film in 2017.”

Ciarán Dooley’s ‘Great Wide Open’ aired yesterday, Monday January 9th at 11.50pm and will be available on RTÉ Player until Wednesday, February 8th.
