Authored Works Award – deadline 17:30 Thursday 30 September 2021
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 2021. A total fund of up to €200,000 will be made available to the successful applicant (to include a production budget of €185,000 and further exhibition support of €15,000). 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 2023.
Applications for Authored Works Award must be made directly to the Arts Council before 17:30 on Thursday, 30 September 2021. The window for making applications opens on 31 August 2021. Guidelines and details of the application process are published on our website on the available funding section.
Please note: Applications for all awards will only be accepted through the Arts Council’s online services website. It is recommended that new applicants allow five working days for registration before making an application.
