RTÉ Format Farm 2016 is looking for format submissions
18 Jul 2016 :
Format Farm is an established RTÉ business innovation initiative to support the production and broadcast of original TV formats for both Irish audiences and for export.

Opens: 18th July 2016 Closing Date: 9th September 2016 (12 noon, strict deadline)

Successful Commissions will be announced on 31st October 2016

As with previous years for this initiative a Short List will be provided to enable the Independent Producers to go and seek financing from other sources which may include International Distributors.

RTÉ Channel Controllers will make their final selection for 4 pilots from the Format idea's that have received matched funds.

RTÉ Format Farm will provide 50% of the budget.

Budget estimates are €25K from RTÉ Format Farm and €25K from the Independent Production Company (via International Distributor).

For exceptional ideas there may be potential to increase the budget. Any budget increase provided will required a commensurate increase in matched funding from the Independent Production company or participating International Distributor.

In the first instance, producers should submit ideas into the eCommissioning system Under Format Farm. Please ensure that you choose the appropriate channel, i.e. RTÉ One or RTÉ2 and the relevant Genre for your format.

Note: RTE reserves the right to move format ideas across the two channels and various or genres should it deem it appropriate.

All ideas will be reviewed by the relevant Genre Head and Head of Formats for consideration and they will make recommendations to the Channel Controllers. The Channel Controllers will seek input from RTÉ Global for a view on the international potential of the recommended ideas.

In the past Format Farm ideas have been funded and developed in partnership with some of the biggest names in international distribution, and the work so far has received a very positive response from the international TV market.

Format Farm successes with international options include: The Take Over, The Hit and Whose Holiday is it Anyway
