Donegal Film Office Short Film Bursary

The Donegal Film Office acts as the main resource for filmmakers in Donegal and those who wish to locate to the county from all over the world. The office was established by Donegal County Council in 2003 to promote the region and to help develop the profile of the county. Working in cooperation with FÍS (Screen Ireland) the Film Office helps filmmakers to find locations, cast and crew, technical services and local service providers. The Film Office has extensive experience with visual production and is available to assist with all aspects of production.  

The Donegal Film Office has set out a number of priorities to support existing and emerging talent in the county in the coming years. The Short Film Bursary is a creative response to showcase the talent 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 2021. The Bursary aims to foster talent, creativity and activity in filmmaking in County Donegal.
