As well as offering a platform for those just starting out in film, FilmG are proud to be able to give those who are working in the media industry the opportunity to create new high quality content in Gaelic.
We have the highly coveted Best Film from (Industry) with a prize of £1,000 up for grabs!
Most of you who have found a path into the media industry already are eligible to win this award as long as you have a creative credit on a TV/Film production, ie as a writer/director/editor. If you have a professional credit in an another capacity (as a runner/production co-ordinator) you are eligible to enter the open category.
If you yourself are not a Gaelic speaker, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us and we can pair you up with someone who will be able to work alongside you to develop your idea.
Below are a couple of previous shortlisted/winners.

PRIZES YOU COULD WIN!
Best Film from an Industry Director
Working day to day on TV and Radio programmes doesn’t always give young Gaelic speakers the opportunity to develop their own creative talents. This award specifically gives young industry professionals the opportunity to showcase their own ideas and do so hopefully with some mentoring from those more experienced working alongside them.
We are looking for a work of fiction in any genre which is imaginative, original, engaging and entertaining. Strong stories and scripts are the foundation of a good film, so we’ll pay particular attention to this as well as how the overall film comes together and connects with the audience.
Prize: £1000 towards equipment, training, or further development.
- Director must have worked on TV/Film productions (any credited role)
Completely lost on where to start? Need a bit of encouragement? Why don’t you check out our YouTube channel where you can find all the films from previous years (Yes, ALL of them!) and hopefully you can pick up an idea or two!
