Irish Film Board announces Catalyst Project winners


- Three filmmaking teams to make films budgeted at €350,000

Irish Film Board announces Catalyst Project winners

The Irish Film Board has revealed the three teams, selected from 88 applicants, who have won the opportunity to produce fully funded features budgeted at €350,000 each. The winning teams will also have access to industry experts who will offer mentorship and guidance. 

Kissing Candice, written and to be directed by Aoife McArdle and to be produced by Andrew Freedman is the story of a lonely, imaginative teenage girl growing up in a stifling community, who finds romance with an unhinged stranger. The Drummer and the Goalkeeper, written and to be directed by Nick Kelly and to be produced by Kate McColgan, is a story about finding true friendship in the craziest of places. Without Name, written by Garret Shanley, to be directed by Lorcan Finnegan and to be produced by Brunella Cocchiglia, follows a systematic land surveyor who loses his reason in a supernatural environment that defies all boundaries.

IFB Chief Executive James Hickey said, “What has been very positive about the initiative is that in the 88 applications we received, a great reservoir of talent came forward. In the end, whilst only three projects could be selected, the strength and depth of Irish creative talent demonstrated through the Catalyst Project bodes well for the future. I wish to congratulate the winning teams who have made it through an incredibly competitive process and we are looking forward to working with them over the next year.”
