New Shorts Focus
New Shorts Focus is an initiative to find Northern Ireland resident filmmakers exclusively from groups that are underrepresented in the film and television industry. The scheme is open to entry level writers and writer/director applicants who are resident in Northern Ireland.
Six projects will be chosen to go through a development process starting in September 2022 and finishing in March 2023.
Applicants must apply with a one-page outline for their project and include their cv. 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. Applicants must have at least one writing or directing credit on previous shorts in the past three years.
The deadline for applications is Friday 29th July at 5pm.
PLEASE NOTE: under no circumstances will applications be accepted after this deadline. Applications cannot be submitted by email.
