6. Deadline for Frameworks animation scheme announced

The deadline for the short animation scheme Frameworks has been announced. Frameworks is a partnership scheme of the Arts Council, the Irish Film Board and RTÉ and is supported by the BAI. It supports the making of animated short films and has been successful in stimulating ground-breaking new work from Irish animators. Projects selected for funding will combine creative exploration with an ability to appeal to a broad audience.

Irish animation has received much international acclaim in recent years and previous Frameworks films have been particularly successful: Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty was nominated for a Best Short Animation Academy Award;  The Rooster, The Crocodile and The Night Sky wasnominated for an ASIFA Hollywood Annie Award; and Old Fangs received critical acclaim at the renowned Sundance, Annecy and the London film festivals.

Frameworks films may be made in Irish or English.

For more information on making an application and to download an application form please visit the Funding Programmes section of the website of the Irish Film Board (www.irishfilmboard.ie).

The deadline for receipt of applications is Friday, 20 April 2012.
