Creative Europe Desk Ireland MEDIA and Filmbase invite media students in Ireland to apply for support for the production and distribution of graduate film and media projects. 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. This session will present an overview of the key supports available from Filmbase and CED Ireland, provide key advice for making funding applications, and answer specific questions on this new initiative.
