Guidelines Published for Screen Ireland and Creative BC Co-Development Fund

Posted: 28th August 2018

Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland has published the guidelines for the CA$150,000 co-development funding scheme between Screen Ireland and Creative BC, announced earlier this year. This is the first international co-development fund of its kind in Western Canada with each partner contributing $75,000 toward the total $150,000 fund.

About the Funding 
Following a successful Trade Mission and furthering our successful relationship with Canada, Screen Ireland and Creative BC (British Columbia (BC), Vancouver) have entered into a relationship to co-develop a number of film and television projects. This co-development will enable up to four projects access development finance from both territories.

The intent of this financing is to foster film and television production between Irish producers and producers based in the BC area.  The total value of the funding available is CA$150,000*.  The maximum amount available to any one project CA$40,000 and funding will be allocated on a 50/50 basis from both agencies.  Projects require the involvement of both an Irish resident producer(s) and a BC resident producer(s). Applicants will first need to apply to Screen Ireland with their project. If approved, an application will then need to be made to Creative BC by the BC resident producer(s).
