Smashing Times are committed to supporting the Irish language in the arts and in using the arts through Irish to promote equality, human rights and diversity. An exciting opportunity for artists and others working through Irish can be found in the recently announced funding opportunity from TG4 and the Arts Council as part of the new season of ilDÁNA 2023/2024.
ilDÁNA is designed to enhance the TG4 schedule by supporting the making of ambitious and cinematic long-form documentaries on the arts in Irish.
Funding is available for the making of two feature-length landmark documentary films, each with a budget of up to €135,000 and one of the two documentaries will give expression to inclusivity and diversity in the arts and actively involve new and under-represented voices.
Submissions and proposals are welcome in any form or arts practice and the funders wish to encourage applications that explore architecture, theatre, street art and other art forms which are not regularly the subject of arts documentaries in Irish.
Applications must be made using the TG4 online application system no later than 5pm on Monday, 11 December 2023.
