Filmbase and RTÉ have announced details for Short Shots, their new short film scheme for 2017. This unique scheme doesn’t just fund films, it offers the next generation of filmmakers a programme of development and production support.

Championing Ireland’s diverse and dynamic emerging filmmakers, we offer development support for shortlisted projects, as well as production and distribution support to the eventual greenlit films. People with good ideas should be encouraged to apply regardless of their creative backgrounds. A wide net will be cast to find new writers, producers and directors with a clear sense of visual storytelling and an original voice.

The purpose of Short Shots is to stimulate a truly independent and unique approach to creative filmmaking. Through this scheme, Filmbase and RTÉ are looking for ambitious films and authentic stories that will excite and resonate with audiences.

The culmination of the programme will be the opportunity of producing a short film with a production budget of €10,000 in a stimulative and supportive environment.

Ful details of the scheme can be found on the Filmbase website.
