Change to funding deadlines



Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (BSÉ/IFB) wish to notify applicants of a change to the procedure for assessing applications for all production and distribution funding. The monthly deadline will no longer apply.

The new upcoming application deadlines for production and distribution funding are as follows:

• Friday 14th February 2014
• Friday 04th April 2014
• Friday 13th June 2014

Applications will be processed within 5-6 weeks of the deadline. This change is being implemented to allow further time to engage with BSÉ/IFB Project Mangers in advance of making an application.

The procedure for the assessment of all development funding applications remains the same. The deadline for the receipt of applications is the last working day of every month. Applications will be processed within 6-8 weeks of the deadline. Please note however that there will be no deadline for applications in March.

The upcoming deadlines for development funding are as follows:

• Friday 31st January 2014
• Friday 28th February 2014
• Wednesday 30th April 2014
• Friday 30th May 2014
• Monday 30th June 2014

Applicants are advised to consult the relevant page of the BSÉ/IFB funding programmes section of the website prior to making an application.
