Four Irish production companies will work with four Canadian companies in the development of new projects
The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) and the Canada Media Fund (CMF) have announced financing of 120,000 to support the co-development of audio-visual content under the Canada-Ireland Co-development Incentive for Audio-Visual Projects.

Four Irish production companies will work with four Canadian companies in the development of the new projects.

IFTN spoke to Producer AnneMarie Naughton of Park Films to find out a little more about one of the projects ‘The Week I Ruined My Life’ which they have received funding for and are co-producing with the Canadian production company Farpoint Films.

 “We’re thrilled to be working with Caroline [Caroline Grace-Cassidy] on adapting her best seller book for the screen. It’s a strong story with a fair amount of dramatic incidents.  It has echoes of ‘Closer’ & ‘I Smile Back’. Modern relationships, flirtation, love triangles, independent women with a zest for life, art and a delicious glass of wine and ultimately the ongoing cultural trend in modern day relationships away from the traditional and towards individualism and self-fulfillment. We’re delighted to be co-producing on it with Farpoint Films in Winnepeg,” she said.

The four projects receiving financing include:

  • ‘The Drownings’ - New Decade TV (Ireland) &  Soshefeigh Media (Canada) Received BAI Funding of €17,140 & CMF Funds approximately €16,280
  • ‘The Edge’ - Saffron Pictures (Ireland) & Facet 4 Media (Canada) Received  BAI Funding  of €25,000 & CMF Funds of approximately €11,840
  • ‘The Week I Ruined My Life’ - Park Films (Ireland) & Farpoint Films (Canada)
  • BAI Funding  of €23,059 & CMF Funds of approximately €10,000
  • ‘Viking Empires’ - Tile Films (Ireland) &  Cream Productions (Canada) Received  BAI Funding  of €8,571 & CMF Funds of approximately €7,960

The total amount of funding across the projects from BAI amounted to €73,770 and CMF Funds approximately €46,080.

To be eligible for funding, the selected projects were required to be intended for broadcast by eligible Irish and Canadian broadcasters, involving at least one Irish producer and one Canadian producer. The incentive seeks to fund television projects (and digital media extensions of such television projects), which fulfil both the guidelines of the CMF and the objectives and themes of BAI’s Sound & Vision Scheme. Projects were evaluated and chosen by a selection committee composed of representatives from both funding organisations.
