'Signatures' Short Film Funding Scheme Announces Deadline of 23rd Aug
17 Jul 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
The Oscar-nominated short 'Pentecost' benefitted from the 'Signatures' scheme.
The Irish Film Board has announced the deadline for submissions to its ‘Signatures’ short film scheme as Friday 23rd August, with live action shorts welcomed in both English and Irish.

Past short films which benefitted from the ‘Signatures’ funding scheme include 'Pentecost' which was Oscar nominated for best live action short in 2012; and ‘Foxes’ which was officially selected for the SXSW and Tribeca film festivals in 2012 and the Clermont Ferrand Short Film Festival earlier this year.

'Pentecost', directed by Peter McDonald, is the story of a football-obsessed altar boy who is banned from playing and watching football after accidentally knocking over the priest during mass, in the middle of 1977 World Cup hysteria.

Lorcan Finnegan’s ‘Foxes’, meanwhile, follows characters Ellen and James who live alone in a silent maze of uniform houses populated only by spectral shrieking foxes.

‘Signatures’ was devised for the purpose of making of live action fiction films that serve as a testing-ground for Irish creative talents with strong original storytelling, visual flair, and big screen production values.

The Irish Film Board advises applicants preparing their submissions to allow for a production timeframe from January to April next year with full delivery by the end of May 2014.

Irish language submissions are also actively encouraged.

For information on making an application and to download an application form, visit the Funding Programmes section of the Irish Film Board site here.

The trailer for ‘Pentecost’ is available to view below:
