This support will be open to any student, or groups of students, collaborating on the creation of an audiovisual film, documentary or multimedia project as part of their final year coursework.

  • Information Session 06 March in Filmbase | Apply here to secure your place.
  • Application Deadline 20 March | Eligibility & Application Forms available here.

These awards will provide support for film and media students graduating into the Irish and European audiovisual industries and to encourage graduates to develop the essential skills necessary for creating future funding applications. As such the application process for support replicates key aspects of the application process for Irish and European project funding.

Two projects will be awarded a cash contribution of up to €750 to support their production budgets and to facilitate the development and implementation of a marketing and distribution strategy for their completed works. In addition, film-based projects will be offered access to facilities at Filmbase and individual consultation on festival strategy and international marketing for short films.

Students interested are invited to attend an Information Session on Tuesday 6th March from 3.30 – 4.30pm in Filmbase.

Great news for LIT and Limerick.
PRESS RELEASE

LIT Welcomes An Bord Pleanala Decision to Grant Full Planning Permission for €14 million Coonagh Campus development
– First Major Piece of Infrastructure on Limerick’s Knowledge Corridor

LIT has welcomed the decision of An Bord Pleanala to grant full planning permission for construction of a new engineering-focussed campus at Coonagh on the Northside of the city. 

In effect, the decision has given the green light for an entirely new kind of state-of-the-art higher education campus in Limerick, and unlocks a €14 million Phase One capital investment. The development will lead to 134 construction jobs and 100 full time jobs when fully completed.

The first students are expected to be on campus at the start of the 2018/19 academic year, with 800 staff and students on the LIT Coonagh campus by the end of the 2019/2020 academic year.  

Commenting on the decision, LIT President, Professor Vincent Cunnane said, “We are delighted to be able to proceed with the development of the new campus now. This is a critical piece of infrastructure, not just for LIT, but for Limerick and the region.
“This decision is a win for everyone, and underlines our commitment to the coherent development of Limerick city and the region through our 2030 Campus masterplan. 
“In order to strengthen the economic growth that the region has experienced in recent times, it is essential to provide the research and educational infrastructure that such growth is predicated on. The LIT Coonagh campus does just this, and enables us to produce graduates with the very specific skills needed to sustain the region’s economic growth. 
“This project represents another step in the re-imagining of the Northside of Limerick city. It helps to shift the gravity on this side of the city. This is the first major piece of infrastructure on the Northern Distributor Road, now becoming Limerick’s Knowledge Corridor, with LIT Coonagh at one end and the National Technology Park at the other.
“I would like to acknowledge the work of An Bord Pleanala and Limerick City and County Council on this project, as well as the continued perseverance of LIT’s staff.
“This decision gives us the certainty we need to provide exemplary state of the art education and research space for students, staff and industry in the region.
