Film In Cork – Short Script Award 2017

Film In Cork, through the support of the Arts Offices of Cork City and County Councils, is delighted to announce the launch of the 2017 Short Script Award. This funding initiative aims to foster creative and resourceful filmmaking in the Cork region.

We are looking for original, entertaining stories by talented filmmakers who, if selected, must set and shoot their project in the city and/or county of Cork.

The award will be given to one successful project which will receive €8,000 towards the cost of production, along with support in terms of locations, production, mentoring and planning the film’s festival release strategy over the course of a nine month period.

In order to be eligible for the award, applicants must have full rights to the material they are submitting. Short film scripts, including treatments for documentary, of any style and genre will be accepted as long as they are between 7 and 12 pages.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Friday, December 9th. Application forms and detailed guidelines can be found HERE.
