Latest Announcement of €280,000 brings total Creative Europe MEDIA investment in Ireland to €5.6M
10 May 2017 : Katie McNeice
‘I've Got a Time Travelling Monkey on My Back’
Six Irish companies were awarded the funding, under the Content Development of a Single Project branch, exceeding the total amount of any other country. The funding has gone to a mix of animation, documentary and drama projects.

Creative Europe have also noted that Irish projects experienced a 46% success rate in this round, which is also one of the highest to date.

Animation
The animated projects which received €60,000 each were ‘I've Got a Time Travelling Monkey on My Back’ from Treehouse Republic and ‘Peek Zoo’ from Igloo Films, both of which were pitched at Cartoon Forum last September.

The third animation is ‘Brain Freeze XL’ from Kite Entertainment which is a spin-off of their highly successful show ‘Brain Freeze’ on CBBC.

Documentary
Two documentaries received €25,000 each: Sophie Fiennes’ next project ‘The Pervert's Guide to the Twenty First Century’, produced by Blinder Films and ‘Old Friend - New Master: Will China Save Europe’s Piano industry?’ from Gambit Pictures.

Drama
Tailored Films run by Ruth Treacy and Julianne Forde received funding for the only Irish drama which was successful in this round, ‘Winter Lake’.

Orla Clancy, Dublin MEDIA Office:
“Access to Development funding has been repeatedly cited as being the key to a successful industry so we are delighted that so many companies are gaining access to this important funding. The awards are a testament to the high quality and international potential of the projects submitted. It is also great to see first time applicants getting funding with 4 of the 6 awarded companies receiving MEDIA funding for the first time.”

Eibhlín Ní Mhunghaile, Galway MEDIA Office:
“With Brexit looming, continued access to Creative Europe funding is vital for the international growth of the Irish audiovisual industry. The Dublin and Galway MEDIA Offices are here to advise companies on their applications so we recommend that companies who are thinking of applying to come to us so we can ensure that they’re putting their best foot forward!”
