Irish Language Broadcast Fund

Celtic International Fund


Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund (ILBF) has joined forces with a host of broadcasters from the Celtic territories to establish an exciting new media production fund with the aim of developing drama, animation and factual programmes in the Celtic languages.

The ‘Celtic International Fund’ will run an annual joint-commissioning round between the indigenous Celtic language television broadcasters and funders of Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The fund has been created through a joint-funding initiative between the ILBF, BBC ALBA (with funding from MG ALBA), TG4 and S4C.

The aim of the Celtic International Fund is to promote co-development and then co-production through Scottish Gaelic, Welsh and Irish, and to encourage a broader European and worldwide internationalisation of productions which are originally conceived in those Celtic languages.

The Celtic International Fund will provide film-makers with an opportunity to co-develop and co-produce distinctive, ambitious works to enrich primetime programme schedules, to have a national impact with audiences in the territories of Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland and seek to reach audiences worldwide.

The initial call-out encompasses three genres – Factual, Drama and Animation.  All successful projects will undergo a development phase where funding will be provided to both develop ideas and the co-production framework, which must have a production element in Scotland, Wales and either Ireland, or Northern Ireland.

The Celtic International Fund will be administered by a joint commissioning team drawn from the Celtic language broadcasters and funders who are partners in the scheme.

The deadline to submit applications for the Celtic International Fund ‘Drama’ has been extended until 12pm, 31st of October.
