New Shorts Focus 2021-22


The New Shorts Focus Scheme is open to entry level writers and writers/directors resident in Northern Ireland, particularly those from groups that are underrepresented within the film and television industry.

6 projects will be chosen to go through a development process starting in September 2021 and finishing in March 2022. After the development process, up to 3 projects will be selected to move into production after the initial development period.

A production company will be attached to each of the selected projects. That company will make the funding application. A production company is attached once the final projects are selected. Northern Ireland Screen can assist with the attachment of a production company if required.

Applicants must apply with a one-page outline for their project. A maximum of two outlines per applicant can be submitted. Please attach CVs for the creative team and an online link to view a previous short film if you are applying as a writer/director.

Deadline for applications is Friday 23rd July.
