ilDÁNA 2022/2023

TG4 and the Arts Council are delighted to announce a new season of ilDÁNA 2022/2023 with increased funding.

ilDÁNA is designed to enhance the TG4 schedule by supporting the making of ambitious and cinematic long-form documentaries on the arts in Irish. This year we wish to fund the making of two feature-length landmark documentary films, each with a budget of up to €135,000. It is our intention that one of the two documentaries will give expression to inclusivity and diversity in the arts and actively involve new and under-represented voices.

While we welcome proposals about any art form or arts practice area, we wish to encourage applications that explore architecture, theatre, street art and other art forms which are not regularly the subject of arts documentaries in Irish.

Applications must be made using the TG4 online application system no later than 5pm Friday 14th October

Cybernate Digital Arts Research Residency on Public Spaces

Cybernate is the first Digital Arts Research Residency developed between Ireland and France. The aim of the research residency is to develop a project idea in Digital Arts for public space and present a work in progress at the end of the residency. This does not need to be a fully developed project. Furthermore, the participating artists will be supported with time, space, and networking opportunities. A call for submissions selects the candidates according to the proposed project.

The residency is funded by the Arts Council’s International Residency Programme – a pilot initiative by the Arts Council. The deadline for submission of applications is 14th October
