The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) has announced the latest funding decisions in the twelfth round of the TV Broadcasting Scheme. Grants totaling €7,861,000 have been offered to support the production of 43 television projects, all exploring themes of Irish Culture, Heritage and Experience.

A variety of projects have been offered funding, 16 of which will be broadcast on commercial and community Television. 12 Irish language projects have been granted €2.3 million worth of offers and a further allocation of €680,000 has been allocated to two animated projects.

Projects that received offers of funding include Brendan Gleeson’s feature film ‘At Swim Two Birds’, which received a grant of €500,000; Cartoon Saloon’s animated feature ‘Song of the Sea’/‘Amhrán na Mara’, which was granted €500,000; ROSG’s ‘An Bronntanas’ which has been offered €700,000 and Abú Media Teo have been offered €400,000 for Irish language documentary ‘1916 Seachtar Anaithnid’ and €375,000 for bi-lingual drama ‘Oícheanta Sí’.

Speaking at the announcement, Chief Executive of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, Michael O’Keefe said “The Broadcasting Funding Scheme continues to be a major source of funding for both the broadcasting and independent television production sectors in Ireland. While documentary remains the most popular genre in terms of applications received, and the most successful in terms of funding offered, we are particularly pleased with the increase in the amount of projects funded in the Drama and Animation genres on this occasion. Once again the Scheme has awarded vital funding that will enable broadcasters and producers to make high quality programmes that will inform and entertain Irish viewers.”

The funding package was ratified by the Authority at its meeting on September 5th, following recommendations made by assessment panels of experts from the audiovisual sector and BAI Staff. A total of 98 applicants were received in this round requesting a total of €19,763,804.
