Arts Council Film Bursary Award and ilDÁNA Funding Application Deadlines – end of Jan 2020

Film Bursary Award
This award supports professional individual artists at any stage of their career working in the field of experimental or non-narrative film making to develop their arts practice. The award emphasises the value and benefit to an artist’s development derived from an extended process of engagement with their practice at any stage of their career. The award therefore provides artists with the time and resources to think, research, reflect and engage with their arts practice. The Arts Council has identified the following as a strategic priority for support through this award: Applicants who wish to develop their practice in the area of experimental or nonnarrative film-making and who would not be ordinarily supported to do so by other funding bodies or agencies in Ireland. Filmmakers can apply for a grant up to a maximum of €15,000

Deadline: Thursday, 30 January 2020
