TG4 and the Arts Council are delighted to announce a new season of ilDÁNA 2020.
ilDÁNA is designed to enhance the TG4 schedule by supporting the making of an ambitious and cinematic long-form documentary on the arts in Irish. A budget of €120,000 will be made available by the partners for this landmark documentary which will have a theatrical window before its broadcast in a primetime slot on TG4.
Applications must be made using the TG4 online application system no later than 17:00 on Friday, 31 January 2020.
Guidelines for ilDÁNA 2020:
– Films commissioned for ilDÁNA will provide a definitive creative treatment of their arts subject. All artistic disciplines will be considered. Contemporary subjects are preferred but contemporary treatments of historical works/subjects may also be considered.
– One film will be funded with a budget of up to €120,000. It will launch with a dedicated cinema screening and will have a theatrical window before broadcast to a primetime TG4 audience in 2020/2021.
– TG4 will administer the commissioning process of ilDÁNA films, TG4 will issue contracts and TG4’s ‘Terms of Trade’ will apply.
Representatives from TG4, the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and an independent assessor will make the selection for ilDÁNA.
