Production

FÉ/SI provides funding for the production of live-action and animated feature films and animated television series

Fiction

FÉ/SI provides funding for the production of live-action and animated feature films and animated television series (but not documentaries, for which see point 2, below) across these distinct categories:

Irish Film Production

Films (live-action and animated features) and in certain limited circumstances high-quality television drama (including English- and Irish-language drama) originated and creatively led by Irish talents - directors, writers, producers. The content will generally express Irish culture in some way, and the practical management will be primarily in Irish hands. view more >

Creative Co-production

Films originated outside Ireland in which an Irish producer is involved as a creative collaborator and provider of a minority of the finance needed. The film must be structured as an official co-production with significant production activity in the Republic of Ireland. In certain cases, there will be a commitment by a funding body in the principal producer's country to provide reciprocal support for an Irish film. view more >

International Production

Feature films and TV drama originating and principally managed from outside Ireland which use Ireland as a location and involve Irish creative elements, with local services provided by an Irish-based producer (please note this fund is not currently available) view more >

Animation TV Production

Animated TV series originated and creatively led by Irish talents - directors, writers, producers, animators - the content of which will generally (but not invariably) express Irish culture in some way, and the practical management of which is primarily in Irish hands. view more >
