Applications open for Ardán / RTÉ Short Film Commission Scheme 2023
07 Sep 2023 : News Desk
Ardán and RTÉ have announced the latest round of the Ardán / RTÉ Short Film Commission Scheme. Applications will close at 5pm on Friday, 6th October 2023.

Now in its 32nd year, the scheme is an opportunity for Irish-based writers, directors, and producers to apply as a team for an award of €15,000 to produce a live action short film of up to 10 minutes which will broadcast on RTE 2 Shortscreen and feature on the RTÉ Player.  Each team must include an individual Writer, Director, and Producer to apply.   

The most recent short films that were made as part of the Commission are The Radio and Misread. The Radio premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh in 2022 and has gone on to win several awards and honours since. Misread premiered at the 2023 Galway Film Fleadh, with plans to tour the film festival circuit throughout 2024. 

To be eligible, the team members must be habitually resident in Ireland and each member must have made a short film in their relevant role previously. A team can only apply with one project for the scheme.

Films can be based anywhere in Ireland and the rough cut needs to be delivered by 22nd March 2024.

Each application will be independently assessed, with up to five teams being invited to an interview in Galway to pitch their film to a panel. One team will be selected to take part in the Scheme and the successful candidates will be provided with mentorship and guidance from a host of experienced industry professionals. 

Recent mentors have been Brendan Muldowney (Director), Mark O’Halloran (Script Editor) and Katie Holly (Producer).

As a part of RTÉ’s drama expansion, Storyland moved to RTÉ television for the first time last year with three single 30-minute dramas being broadcast in the autumn of 2022. From September 2023, RTÉ has three new series with 18 hours coming in the autumn on RTÉ One and three brand new Storyland single dramas for RTÉ2.

The deadline for receipt of applications is 3pm on Friday, 6th October 2023.

An information day will be held in Portershed a Dó (Market Street) in Galway City on Friday 15th September at 1pm-4pm. 

Registration is required to attend the info day. Registration closes on 14th September.
