Media Grant Scheme



Date Posted: November 15, 2021

The Community Relations Council (CRC) and Northern Ireland Screen have launched this year’s Media Grant Scheme 2021/22.

In addition to CRC funding of up to £15,000, Northern Ireland Screen will contribute up to £7,500 Lottery Funding provided through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland towards the costs of professional mentoring support. The successful Media Grant recipient will be expected to work with a Northern Ireland based production company and engage in a formal option agreement with the production company. The production company will be responsible for the management of the Northern Ireland Screen award and production budget and will provide support for the duration of the project.

This is an exciting opportunity to produce a factual short film of up to 15 minutes which addresses a community relations issue or theme. Animation can also be included if required. It is hoped that the completed short film could also be submitted to accredited film festivals and could have a successful festival run after delivery of the film.

The scheme is aiming to support a single applicant. The applicant must be a new and emerging film maker who is resident in Northern Ireland and have directed at least one short film independently, which should be available to view online.

Successful applicant must complete their project by Thursday 31st March 2022.

Closing date: Friday 26th November 2021 at 4pm
