Celtic Broadcasters Launch International Production Fund

Celtic International Fund

A host of broadcasters from the Celtic regions have joined forces to set up an exciting new media production fund to develop new drama, animation and factual programmes in the Celtic languages.

The ‘Celtic International Fund’ will run an annual joint-commissioning round between the indigenous Celtic language television broadcasters and funders of Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland.

It has been set up by BBC ALBA (with funding from MG ALBA), S4C, TG4 and Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund (ILBF).

The aim of the Celtic International Fund is to promote co-development and then co-production through Scottish Gaelic, Welsh and Irish, and to encourage a broader European and worldwide internationalisation of productions which are originally conceived in those Celtic languages.

The Celtic International Fund will provide film-makers with an opportunity to co-develop and co-produce distinctive, ambitious works to enrich primetime programme schedules, to have a national impact with audiences in the territories of Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland and seek to reach audiences worldwide.

The initial call-out encompasses three genres - Factual, Drama and Animation. All successful projects will undergo a development phase where funding will be provided to both develop ideas and the co-production framework, which must have a production element in Scotland, Wales and either Ireland, or Northern Ireland.

The Celtic International Fund will be administered by a joint commissioning team drawn from the Celtic language broadcasters and funders who are partners in the scheme.

Iseabail Mactaggart, MG ALBA Director of Strategy and Development said “This is an important move which will strengthen the strategic approach to co-production for BBC ALBA – an area in which MG ALBA initiatives have already created substantial gains for BBC ALBA audiences and increased opportunities for our suppliers. By partnering with other Celtic broadcasters, we will also be able to take advantage of further European and worldwide opportunities. We expect this initiative to enable us to deliver higher quality programming by pooling resources on development and production. The prospect of doing that in areas such as Factual, Drama and Animation is hugely exciting. BBC ALBA operates in an increasingly competitive world. Working together with Celtic broadcasters and developing new production models will create more opportunities for rich, distinctive programming and will further increase the economic benefits from investment in Gaelic broadcasting.”

Craoladairean Ceilteach a’ Foillseachadh Maoin Riochdachaidh Eadar-nàiseanta

Celtic International Fund

Tha craoladairean bho na dùthchannan Ceilteach air a thighinn còmhla gus maoin riochdachaidh ùr a chur air chois gus prògraman dràma, beò-dhealbhadh agus aithriseach a leasachadh sna cànain Ceilteach.

Thèid cuairt-coimiseanaidh bliadhnail eadar craoladairean agus luchd-maoineachaidh nan dùthchannan Ceilteach ann an Alba, a’ Chuimrigh, Èirinn agus Èirinn a Tuath a ruith le Maoin Eadar-nàiseanta Cheilteach (CIF).

Chaidh a chuir air chois le BBC ALBA (le maoineachadh bho MG ALBA), S4C, TG4 agus Maoin Craolaidh na Gaeilge aig Sgrion Èireann a Tuath (ILBF).

’S e amas an CIF co-leasachadh - agus an uair sin co-riochdachadh - a bhrosnachadh tro Ghàidhlig na h-Alba, Cuimris agus Gaelige, a thuilleadh air leasachadh a dhèanamh a thaobh eadar-nàiseanachadh Eòrpach agus thar-chruinne air stuthan air an dèanamh bho thùs sna cànain Ceilteach sin.

Bheir an CIF cothrom do luchd-dèanamh fhilmichean co-leasachadh agus co-riochdachadh a dhèanamh air stuthan sònraichte, àrd-amasach a bheir neart do chlàran-ama phrògraman aig prìomh amannan, buaidh nàiseanta air luchd-amhairc ann an Alba, A’ Chuimrigh, Èirinn agus Èirinn a Tuath agus a bhios ag amas air luchd-amhairc air feadh an t-saoghail a ruighinn.

Tha a’ chiad chuairt seo a’ gabhail a-steach trì gnèithean, Prògraman Aithriseach, Dràma agus Beò-dhealbhadh. Airson gach pròiseact a bhios soirbheachail, bidh àm leasachaidh ann far an tèid maoineachadh a sholarachadh gus beachdan agus am frèam-obrach co-riochdachaidh a leasachadh, aig am feum eileamaid riochdachaidh a bhith ann an Alba, a’ Chuimrigh agus Èirinn no Èirinn a Tuath.

Thèid an CIF a rianachd le co-sgioba coimiseanaidh bho na craoladairean agus an luchd-maoineachaidh às na dùthchannan Ceilteach a tha nan com-pàirtichean san sgeama seo.

Thuirt Iseabail Nic an t-Sagairt, Stiùiriche Ro-innleachd is Co-bhanntachd MG ALBA: “’S e gluasad cudromach a tha seo a neartaicheas modh-obrach ro-innleachdail a thaobh co-riochachadh airson BBC ALBA – àite far a bheil iomairtean MG ALBA mu thràth air buannachdan susbainteach a chruthachadh gu maith luchd-amhairc BBC ALBA agus meudachadh ann an cothroman airson ar luchd-solair. Le bhith ag obair ann an com-pàirteachas le craoladairean Ceilteach eile bidh cothrom againn cuideachd buannachd fhaighinn bho thuilleadh chothroman Eòrpach agus thar-chruinne. Thathas a’ sùileachadh gun toir an iomairt seo dhuinn cothrom prògraman aig ìre nas àirde a lìbhrigeadh le co-roinneadh de ghoireasan agus de riochdachadh agus tha e cho brosnachail an cothrom seo a bhith againn ann an raointean leithid prògraman Aithriseach, Dràma agus Beò-dhealbhadh. Tha BBC ALBA beò ann an saoghal a tha a’ sior fhàs nas fharpaisich. Le bhith ag obair còmhla ri craoladairean Ceilteach agus a’ leasachadh modailean riochdachaidh ùr tha cothrom ann prògraman a tha beairteach is sònraichte a chruthachadh agus thèid meudachadh a dhèanamh sna buannachdan eaconamaigeach an lùib seilbheachd ann an craoladh Gàidhlig.”
