Laois Short Film Bursary Award

The Short Film Bursary Award aims to foster talent, creativity and activity in filmmaking in County Laois. A grant of €10,000 will be awarded to a filmmaker towards the cost of production of a short drama or documentary film of 10-12 mins duration to be shot in Laois in 2022.

This is the second year of the Bursary Award and was created from recommendations within a scoping report (supported by Creative Ireland) on the establishment of a Film Office in Co Laois.

Championing homegrown talent is an agreed measure to develop capacity and supports for Laois filmmakers and in opening our doors to filmmaking in Laois. 

We are looking for original, entertaining stories by talented filmmakers who, if selected, must set and shoot their project in County Laois. One of the core creative team (Writer/Director/Producer) must be from or living in Laois. 

Deadline for submissions is Friday 8 April, 4pm

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
