New Dawn v1 7 X3

First deadline for NEW DAWN film production fund is 27th June, 2022. Ireland is one of the 8 eligible countries.

In May 2022, nine European Funds officially launched NEW DAWN production fund at Festival de Cannes to support more diversity in the international film industry.

The film industry is still unequal in many ways. With the introduction of the NEW DAWN international film production fund, the participating funds want to explore ways to increase variety and representation. A vibrant, open and inclusive film industry with true diversity of perspectives and filmic expressions has relevance for everyone.

Through NEW DAWN, filmmakers are invited to contribute to this mission. NEW DAWN will operate as a production fund by making additional funding available for film productions and by supporting film makers in setting up networks. The fund supports up to €200,000 for a feature film (fiction or animated film) and up to €100.000 for a feature-length documentary. The first submission deadline is 27th June, 2022.

Applications for NEW DAWN can only be submitted by an independent production company (a legal entity) based in one of the participating countries: Belgium, Finland, Ireland, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal and Sweden.

The European Film Academy joins New Dawn as a partner and will support the selected film makers in getting access to crucial networks and platforms for productions
