Amharc Funding Initiative Launched by TG4, BBC Gaeilge & Northern Ireland Screen
30 Jun 2017 :
The new scheme has been created to support the production of landmark creative films on the arts in Northern Ireland today.

The deadline for applications is September 1st 2017.

Amharc will provide film-makers with an opportunity to make distinctive, ambitious productions which will enrich BBC Northern Ireland and TG4’s main programming schedules and which will also have a cinematic release. All artistic disciplines will be considered. Priority will be given to contemporary subjects but contemporary treatments of historical works will also be considered.

Emphasis will be placed on treatments and storytelling that are creative and innovative whilst also having an approach that will entice the largest audience possible.

In the scheme’s first season, the total funding pot will be £150,000 and it is expected that two projects will be funded. Projects should be 50-70 minutes in duration with a maximum budget of £75,000. However, it is possible that projects with a larger ambition and financial plan may be chosen if they seek funding from other sources. Completed projects must be in Irish or bilingual and in HD with English subtitles.

It is envisaged that projects will launch with a cinematic release before they broadcast on TG4 and BBC Northern Ireland in early 2019.

The ILBF will administer the scheme in conjunction with broadcasters BBC Northern Ireland and TG4 and the projects should comply with the ILBF and the broadcasters’ priorities and aims.

Representatives from the ILBF, TG4 and BBC Gaeilge will be responsible for selecting the applications.
