Creative Europe Desk Ireland – MEDIA Office has announced two further TV funding awards as well as eight co-development awards that feature Irish companies either as lead applicants or partners. This result represents a doubling of MEDIA co-development funding awards for Irish companies since the 2022 results.

MEDIA’s co-development funding award supports the co-development of fiction, animation, creative documentary for cinema, TV or digital platforms. The Irish companies, partners and projects are detailed below as are some quotes from companies who are delighted with their recent funding success.

“The most recent results show that Irish Film and television companies are continuing to collaborate successfully with companies from across Europe,” said Orla Clancy, MEDIA Office Dublin, commenting on the Irish results. “Through these results alone, we can see co-development partners from France, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Italy and Sweden. It is wonderful to see so many Irish beneficiaries as lead partners in the collaborations. This co-development scheme is also a fantastic way for small companies to work on a European level by being a minority partner on a project.”

“We are delighted to see Irish companies benefit from European Co-Development, a more challenging funding application than the previous Single Project Development scheme as European partners are required,” added Eibhlín Ní Mhunghaile from MEDIA Office Galway. “This European collaboration is also evident in the TV & Online funding results which will see Gaeltacht company Telegael co-producing a 26x22’ Animated TV Series with Italy, Luxembourg and Germany; and Irish animation studio, Daily Madness, co-producing a 56x11’ TV Series with Belgium and France.”

€5.8 million has been awarded to Irish companies under the MEDIA strand since the 2021 – 2027 Creative Europe programme started.
