Ever wanted to make a film, but not sure how to go about organising the finance end of it? Irish film organisation aemi are hosting a free workshop event addressing that very issue this Friday, April 16th.
The day-long event is aimed at aspiring filmmakers, and will explore the various pathways available to Irish filmmakers to raise funding for their film projects.
Sharing their insights throughout the day will be some of Ireland’s top young filmmakers including Bryony Dunne and Dónal Foreman. Art filmmaker Kevin Gaffney whose film Expulsion has just been on show at Cork’s prestigious Crawford Gallery will also be on hand to discuss strategies for writing successful funding applications.
Meanwhile attendees will also have an opportunity to connect with Fionnuala Sweeney and Audrey Keane who head up the Arts Council of Ireland’s Film department. They will be discussing forthcoming funding opportunities for filmmakers and how best to approach the application process.
Open to aspiring filmmakers of all levels, the event is organised by Irish arts organisation aemi who are dedicated to promoting experimental film and artists moving image. Tickets to the workshop are free but booking is required via eventbrite.
Tickets to the event are available on Eventbrite
