dlr First Frames 2023
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council have announced the short films which have been awarded funding under the dlr First Frames Scheme 2023/24. The films are due for completion in Autumn 2024.

The three short films that have received funding from the latest the dlr First Frames Scheme are The Invitation, Snámh and Departure Time.

In The Invitation, when a socially challenged teen gets an invite to his first party, his overprotective parents go to huge lengths to prepare him for what might happen next. Written by Niamh O’Connor, a crime journalist turned screenwriter, it will be directed by Sinéad O’Brien and produced by Sharon Lawless. Actors Clare Monnelly and Aaron Monaghan will both be involved.

Snámh/Float is a short film about an old woman who is abandoned on a seashore by the men of her village; it is a symbolic story about the apparent disposability of older and disabled people. The film is written by Maura Campbell, directed and co-produced by Anna Czarska, and produced by Gemma Stack. It will be the first Irish language short commissioned under the dlr First Frames Scheme.

Departure Time is set against the backdrop of modern Dublin and follows two despondent characters as they discover friendship and hope on the worst day of their lives. It is written and directed by Academy Nicholl Fellowship semi-finalist Neil Saul and produced by Fiona Kinsella and Megan Kelly for Tile Media. It is a dark comedy about coffee, connections and death.

“DLR First Frames supports the emerging talent in filmmaking in the County – several of the previously funded shorts have gone on to win awards and screen in international festivals,” stated Cathaoirleach of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Cllr. Denis O’Callaghan. “We’re really pleased to include an Irish language short for the first time too.”

Chief Executive of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Frank Curran added: “This Scheme is fully funded by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council’s Arts Office and Economic Development Unit and managed by IADT.  Mentoring support and additional equipment and facilities is provided by the National Film School, IADT; this is a great example of ongoing successful collaboration between the two institutions to support emerging filmmakers at this crucial stage of their careers.”
