Deadline Extended for Dublin Port Short Film Prize 2019
12 Sep 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Dublin Port and the Little Museum of Dublin have extended the call for submission for the new Irish film prize to Friday, September 21st.

The short film prize includes a commissioning fee of €20,000 for the winning applicant and will be seen by over 100,000 visitors to the Little Museum in 2019.

Named “The Dublin Port Short Film Prize 2019”, this new commissioning project in association with Screen Ireland will give artists and filmmakers a unique platform to showcase their work at the museum in telling the story of Dublin.

Up to eight minutes long, the “Port Short” will celebrate the city of Dublin, highlighting aspects of our culture and heritage that separate the city from other capitals in Europe. Both enlightening and entertaining, the film will enhance public understanding of the city’s evolution as well as provide an amusing introduction to Dublin today.

To apply for Port Short 2019, new, experienced and up-and-coming filmmakers are invited to submit expressions of interest as part of a competitive process no later than 5pm on September 13th, 2018.

Applicants are required to submit the following:

  1. Entire script (and, if desired, an optional story board)
  2. Sample of previous film work (via Dropbox / YouTube)
  3. An approximate budget and timeline for the project
  4. Information about the team involved, e.g. a CV (max. 2 additional pages per individual)

Application submissions and queries can be sent to portshort@littlemuseum.ie

The winning filmmaker will be announced in September 2018.

For each of the next five years, in partnership with the Little Museum, Dublin Port will commission a short film about Dublin on the theme of ‘port – river – city’, in keeping with its arts commissioning programmes to date, which include Dublin Ships, Port Perspectives and Starboard Home, as well as the restoration of the Diving Bell on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay. “Port Short” further fulfils Dublin Port’s commitment under its Masterplan 2040 to achieving closer integration between the Port and the City and people of Dublin through cultural, community, environmental and heritage initiatives that enhance the strong ties between the port, river and city.

Speaking about the initiative, Sarah Costigan, Deputy Director, The Little Museum of Dublin, said:

“The Little Museum of Dublin is incredibly proud to partner with Dublin Port on the Port Short Film Prize. We are delighted to have the opportunity to commission an artist to create a film which tells the story of Dublin as a port city. We are encouraging artists to apply by the deadline of September 13th.”

Eamonn O’Reilly, Chief Executive, Dublin Port Company, said:

“Dublin Port is delighted to announce Port Short 2019. This is the first of five short film commissions for The Little Museum of Dublin, which we hope will give visitors to Dublin a unique insight into the City and its relationship with the Liffey and the Port. We are grateful to Screen Ireland for supporting our collaboration with the Little Museum of Dublin and we look forward to fostering the creative talents of local up and coming movie makers.”

Deadline for applications close at 5pm on Friday, September 21st.
