Splanc Returns

The Arts Council, TG4 & The Irish Film Board

For ten years the Splanc! documentary scheme jointly funded by TG4 and the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon has funded many fine documentary films on the arts, and on making art in the Irish language.

Splanc! 2009 will take an intimate look at film making in Ireland as a visual expression of Irish culture from the first movies of the 1910s and will celebrate contemporary film makers, both in the Irish and English language. It will aim to take a broad and inclusive view of the art of film making and the evolution of film as an art form while bringing real artistic and cultural value to primetime television audiences.

Producers shooting in Summer and Autumn 2009, who would like their productions to be included in this series, can contact the production company by email at info@undergroundfilms.ie
