Galway Film Centre & RTÉ Announce Short Film Commission Scheme
08 Feb 2018 : Nathan Griffin
The Galway Film Centre & RTÉ Short Film Commission Scheme is accepting submissions until Wednesday 14th February.

Writers are invited to submit a story idea and from these the best three selected will receive a prize of €500 each. These three writers will then go on to be mentored by an experienced Script Editor Deirdre Roycroft, to bring their idea from a story outline to a finished script. From this, one script will be selected and commissioned as a short film.

New and up-and-coming directors are invited to submit a short CV to be selected through a competitive process to direct the winning script. The directors will be mentored by an experienced director through prep, casting right through to being supported on set. The director’s mentoring panel will include Dearbhla Walsh (‘Fargo’, ‘The Punisher’) and Paddy Breathnach, (‘Viva’, ‘I Went Down’) and, depending on the shooting schedule, one of these will mentor the director.

Producers and production companies are also encouraged to register for the scheme and will be selected on a CV and interview basis. The selected producer will be mentored by producer Donna Eperon (‘Michael Inside’, ‘I Used to Live Here’).

Please note that director and producer teams are also encouraged to apply and will be interviewed together as a team.

The GFC / RTÉ Short Film Commission is a scheme with a fund of €15,000 to produce a 10 to 15 minute short.

Full info on the RTÉ/GFC Short Film Commission is available here.
