The closing date for script applications for Film In Cork’s 2018 Short Script Award is 5pm, this coming Friday, April 6th.

In January Film In Cork, through the support of the Arts Offices of Cork City and County Councils, and in association with the Tomar Trust, announced details of the Short Film Award, a funding initiative that aims to support creative and resourceful filmmaking in the Cork region.

Film In Cork is reminding talented filmmakers to submit their original, entertaining stories ahead of the deadline this Friday. Live action short film scripts will be accepted up to a maximum of 10 pages. In order to be eligible for the award, applicants must have full rights to the material they are submitting.

The award will be given to one successful project which will receive €8,000 towards the cost of production of the film, which must be shot in Cork City and/or county. The winner will also receive support in terms of locations, production, mentoring and planning the film’s festival release strategy.

Encouraging applications, Rossa Mullin, who runs Film in Cork said: “The Short Film Award offers filmmakers in the region the opportunity to work with a budget and bring to life on the big screen ideas and emotions that are currently on paper. We are very grateful for the generous support of the Arts Offices of Cork City and County Councils, as well as the Tomar Trust, who have helped to make this possible.”
