Are you sitting on a killer script?
If you dream of bringing your stories to life on the screen, this could be your chance to make filmmaking your reality.
Film In Cork is looking for original, entertaining stories by talented filmmakers who, if selected, must shoot their project in Cork City and/or county.
The 2018 Short Film Award will be given to one successful project which will receive €8,000 towards the cost of production, along with support in terms of locations, production, mentoring and planning the film’s festival release strategy.
In order to be eligible for the award, applicants must have full rights to the material they are submitting. Live action short film scripts will be accepted up to a maximum of 10 pages.
“The Short Film Award offers filmmakers in the region the opportunity to work with a budget and bring to life on the big screen ideas and emotions that are currently on paper.” says Rossa Mullin, who runs Film in Cork.
“The process in 2018 has been modified somewhat and will involve several stages, beginning with a half-day session on February 25th looking at the development of successful short films, followed by a “Speed Dating” session for writers, directors, and producers to meet and see what synergies they may have to collaborate together.”
Application forms and detailed guidelines for the 2018 Short Film Award can be found here. The closing date for script applications is 5pm on Friday, April 6th.
