TG4, the Arts Council and Bord Scannán na hÉireann/The Irish Film Board invite submissions now from film makers and production companies for Splanc! 2008.
Splanc! 2008 will take an intimate look at film making in Ireland as a visual expression of Irish culture and will celebrate contemporary film makers, both in the Irish and English language. It will aim to take a broad and inclusive view of the art of film making and the evolution of film as an art form while bringing real artistic and cultural value to primetime television audiences. Submissions are invited for a series of films that will take an intimate look at all forms of storytelling on film in Ireland. Feature film, short film, TV drama, documentary, live action and animation works and all other forms of creative film work should be included.
The series is open to creative interpretation and might for instance take a chronological or thematic journey through the evolution of film making in Ireland. The art of the visual treatment of stories should be to the fore in all episodes to include extracts from the films and other works. Material should remain highly accessible for both festival and TV audiences.
Deadline for receipt of submissions is 5pm, 17th of November, 2008
Completed Splanc! 2008 application forms can be downloaded from www.tg4.ie www.artscouncil.ie and www.irishfilmboard.ie
