Production Funding - Northern Ireland Screen

Northern Ireland Screen offers production funding in the form of a recoupable loan with profit participation or in limited circumstances a grant. The fund is intended to assist in completing budgets on productions which are almost fully financed. Northern Ireland Screen will not consider a production with less than 65% of its funding already in place.

Northern Ireland Screen is looking for productions which contribute to building a sustainable screen industry in Northern Ireland and which can show a direct economic benefit to the region.

Projects must be commercially viable and able to demonstrate clear possibilities for commercial exploitation. In the case of feature films, the attachment of an experienced sales agent would be an asset, as would UK or US domestic distribution. For television, an expression of interest from an international distributor or network broadcaster is preferable.

Funding is available towards the production of feature films, television drama, animation, factual and entertainment television and interactive content.
