The Mid-West Short Film Scheme will have an international outlook, supporting emerging regional filmmakers to develop and produce world class short films and helping them to navigate the international film scene to develop their careers.

Purpose of the scheme:

  • To support film skills and talent development in the region by providing industry training to a wide local audience as well as tailored support and practical experience for those crews commissioned.
  • To develop the careers of crews commissioned by providing training and mentoring support and production experience opportunities, as well as international experience for producers and directors on the festival circuit.
  • To promote the Mid-West region as a place to develop and produce film projects.
  • To provide a regional economic stimulus both in the production of the short films at locations in the region and also in the skills development and future projects developed.
