Opportunity: aemi TIER 2 Artist Support Programme- ‘Developing your practice as a film artist’

Published date: 22 Apr 2024

aemi opens applications for its newly launched Tier 2 Artist Support Programme : ‘Developing your practice as a film artist’

TIER 2 works towards developing a more focused career support network and is appropriate for artists who have a more defined plan of the work they plan to make and/or have works in progress or completed.

aemi will accommodate adjustments requested during the application period and can accept an audio or video recording as equivalent to the written application form.

If you have any access needs that you would like to discuss with us please email [email protected] before applying and please also allow ample time for us to support you ahead of the deadline on May 15th.

We actively invite filmmakers and artists who identify as being from underrepresented or marginalised communities to participate in this programme. Particular consideration will be given to recent migrants and to those filmmakers and artists falling under the protected grounds of the Equal Status Act laid out by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission. As part of aemi’s EDI strategy, we particularly encourage applications from people from the Global Majority (global majority refers to people who are Black, Asian, Brown, dual-heritage, indigenous to the global south, and/or have been referred to as “ethnic minorities”); Disabled people; and others who have experienced barriers or discrimination at work.

To fit the criteria, applicants must be from or resident in Ireland.

Our goals are:
-To assist you in developing your professional network.
-To help you secure further career opportunities.
-To help you to foster and build confidence in your practice and motivate you to realise your ambitions as a filmmaker.
-To help you to expand the scope of your practice through supportive critical engagement with your work in suitable environments.
