Northern Ireland Screen seeks applications to develop landmark documentaries with a view to supporting one of those development projects within the Landmark Documentary Production Scheme 2013-2014.
Only Northern Ireland based production companies are eligible to apply. For the avoidance of doubt “Northern Ireland based production companies” in this context means a company with an existing substantive production base within Northern Ireland.
The successful projects will deliver unique visions and voices on universal stories from Northern Ireland resident filmmakers. A documentary project focusing on arts based subjects would be particularly welcomed.
There is no prescribed duration and although Northern Ireland Screen’s preference is a broadcast hour, we will consider feature length projects too and may, if the rational is compelling, consider two-parters or mini-series. Nothing will be automatically excluded on duration.
This is a development call; projects that are already in production are not eligible.
