16 August 2012: The Arts Council and RTÉ wish to advise of a forthcoming film-making opportunity

In 2012, the Arts Council celebrates the 50th Anniversary of its collection as well as 60 years of supporting the arts. To mark the occasion, the Arts Council and RTÉ will support the making of four short films which respond creatively to the collection. The films will be stand alone pieces of 3 minutes in duration which will be broadcast in RTÉ Television’s weekly arts series, THE WORKS, in November and December 2012.

These short films will be highly creative but will also work for a mainstream television audience. The Arts Council and RTÉ will look for projects which combine directors and producers with a track record of quality and creativity in film-making and/or television production.  Each film will be provided with a budget of up to €12,500.

Full details of the initiative (including guidelines and application form) will be announced on Friday, 14 September and an information session will take place on Wednesday, 19 September at 14:00 in the Central Hotel, Exchequer Street, Dublin 2. Anyone interested in attending should register with Filmbase (events@filmbase.ie). Prospective applicants should note that the deadline for receipt of applications is 5pm on Monday, 1 October 2012. Applicants must be available for interview on Monday, 8 October and be in a position to deliver completed films on, or before, Monday, 19 November.

Please note no further information on this initiative will be available before 14 September
