Reel Art is an Arts Council scheme designed to provide film artists with a unique opportunity to make highly creative, imaginative and experimental documentaries on an artistic theme. Operated in association with Filmbase and the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, Reel Art will support three films with a grant of €70-80,000 per project. Reel Art films will be premiered at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival in February 2014.
Film artists interested in applying for Reel Art are invited to attend an information session on the scheme at Central Hotel, Exchequer Street on Wednesday, 19th September at 3.30pm. Representatives from the Arts Council and JDIFF will outline the purpose and priorities of the award and will answer questions on the scheme.
