Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund first call for 2016/17



Date Posted: April 11, 2016

The Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund has announced its first call for 2016/17

The aim of the Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund is to ensure that the heritage, culture and language of Ulster-Scots are expressed through moving image. The USBF also aims to foster the Ulster- Scots independent production sector in Northern Ireland and to fund high quality Ulster-Scots cultural TV programmes for a Northern Ireland audience.

Priority will be given to projects that have ambition, scale and editorial depth; for example, An Independent People. As well as making a greater impact, it is much clearer that these projects are additional, or over and above, programming that the broadcaster might otherwise have produced and financed itself.

Guidelines and Priority documents are all available to download on the funding page
