Information and Guidelines Released for ilDÁNA 2018
21 May 2018 : Nathan Griffin
TG4 and the Arts Council have announced that the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland has joined them as a partner on the arts documentary scheme, ilDÁNA 2018.

ilDÁNA is designed to enhance the TG4 schedule by supporting the making of an ambitious and cinematic long-form documentary on the arts in Irish. A budget of €120K will be made available by the partners for this landmark documentary which will have a theatrical window before its broadcast in a primetime slot on TG4.

Speaking at the launch of the initiative BAI CEO Michael O’Keeffe said:

“Increasing the production and availability of quality Irish language content is a strategic objective for the BAI. Achieving this requires partnerships and the BAI is delighted to support ilDÁNA especially given its focus on innovation and creativity in programming production”.

TG4 Director General, Alan Esslemont also welcomed the development saying:

Following an impressive list of award-winning productions funded during our twenty-year collaboration on the Splanc! Scheme, TG4 welcomes this partnership with the Arts Council and BAI which will ensure that landmark arts documentaries continue as part of the fabric of TG4’s programme schedule.

Welcoming the new partnership, Fionnuala Sweeney, Head of Film at the Arts Council, said:

“We are delighted to be joined by the BAI on this initiative with TG4, which offers a unique opportunity for the making of ‘art about art’ for cinema and television audiences”.

Applications must be made to the Galway Film Centre no later than 17:00 on Thursday, 21 June 2018.
