Funding | Arts Council Authored Works

Application deadline: 15 August, 5.30pm.

The purpose of Authored Works is to provide film artists with the creative and editorial freedom to make a feature-length authored cultural film work from a strong artistic point of view. Films must be artist-led.

One film will be supported in 2019. A total fund of €200,000 will be made available to the successful applicant. This includes a production budget of €185,000 and further exhibition support of €15,000, which will be made available following completion of the film and on submission of an exhibition strategy to be approved by the Arts Council. Only films that can be made within this budget will be considered. The film must be completed to premiere at the Irish Film Institute, our exhibition partner, at an agreed date in 2021.

Applicants will be notified in October 2019 if they have been shortlisted. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to interview in Dublin in October 2019.
