Submissions now open for Kerry Short Film Bursary 2020
28 Feb 2020 : Nathan Griffin
Kerry Short Film Bursary 2020
A fund of €10,000 is available to the successful applicant towards the cost of their production.

The Bursary is funded through Kerry County Council with support from the Arts Council and is intended to foster talent, creativity, and activity in filmmaking within the county.

This is a competitive award and applicants are advised to attend an Information Day on Thursday, March 26th (11 am - 5 pm) in the Anam Centre in Killarney. This day will provide information on how best to complete your application form, including advice on script development.

Applicants must pre-register with filmkerry@kerryetb.ie by Thursday, March 19th to confirm your spot.

Kerry ETB Film Development Officer, Siobhan O’Sullivan outlined “the importance of funds such as this to develop the industry within the county,” while Kerry County Council Arts Officer, Kate Kennelly, described these funds as “an important way to encourage & support filmmaking talent”.

Applicants should have some experience in filmmaking and be able to prove that a director and/or a producer has seen the script and has a sense of its suitability to go into production.

“Film in Kerry is a growing industry. This bursary, funded by Kerry County Council and the Arts Council, helps to support filmmakers whilst promoting Kerry as a location for film,” stated Moira Murrell, CE at Kerry County Council.

Applicants must shoot on location in Kerry but do not have to be from Kerry to apply.  The Kerry Film Office, which is based in Kerry ETB Tralee, will offer location support and guidance as requested, especially in relation to accessing locations and local resources.

There is a two-stage selection process in the open competition. Stage one involves a shortlisting from applications received, while stage two requires an interview in Kerry. 

The closing date for receipt of applications is set at 5 pm on Friday 10th April.

This year, in the spirit of research, Kerry CoCo will be counting the number of applications that pass the Bechdel Test. This will not affect the selection process. Kerry CoCo will also publish the percentage of applications that pass when announcing the winner.
