Celtic International Fund - Submissions Details
10 Aug 2018 :
The Celtic International Fund will be administered by a joint commissioning team drawn from the Celtic language broadcasters and funders who are partners in this scheme. Submissions must be made electronically using a single pdf document for ideas and visuals and a single excel document for budgets.

The 'lead' company in a co-development project must first register with the TG4 ecommissioning portal and upload their submissions by the relevant submission deadline into the relevant section, 'Celtic Factual 2018', 'Celtic Drama 2018' or 'Celtic Animation 2018'.

Initial decisions on submissions will be communicated to the submitting company within two months of the relevant submission date. Development funding will be re-payable if the submission progresses to production, re-payment due on commencement of production. Intellectual Property will reside with the co-developing production companies in a co-sharing manner to be agreed between themselves.

Drama Development
We intend to develop a new model for scripted drama co-production between the Celtic language broadcasters, such as back-to-back production in all 3 languages, delivering three separate language versions from a single scenario. Additional language partners would also be welcomed.

Acceptable projects: TV Movie projects (c.110 minutes duration). Projects may be genre-based (excluding crime genre) and should be intended either for a post-watershed audience or for a family audience.

We would expect that these would be modern interpretations of Celtic stories, capable of connecting easily with a modern family audience in the Celtic nations and worldwide.
