Donegal Film Office Short Film Bursary Award 2024

The Donegal Film Office Short Film Bursary is a creative response to showcase film makers living and working in Donegal.  A grant of €10,000 will be awarded to a filmmaker towards the cost of the production of a short drama or documentary film of 10-12 min duration to be shot in Donegal in 2024.  The Bursary aims to foster talent, support creatives, and increase activity in filmmaking in the County.   Applications are being sought from film makers who have a script that has been developed, seen by a Director, and has had input from a Producer. The Film Office is looking for original, entertaining stories by talented filmmakers who, if selected, must set, and shoot their project in County Donegal.

The closing date for receipt of applications is set at 4pm on 29th March 2024.
