Upcoming funding opportunities for Film Artists – ilDÁNA (TG4 and Arts Council), Agility Award (Arts Council)

TG4 and the Arts Council are delighted to announce a new season of ilDÁNA 2021/2022.

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 TG4 and the Arts Council wish to fund the making of two feature-length landmark documentary films, each with a budget of up to €120,000. 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. Proposals exploring any art form area are welcomed.*

Deadline: 17:00 Friday, 25 June 2021F
