New funding available for film and television productions in Sligo and Donegal

Film and television projects in Sligo and Donegal are benefiting from a new funding investment.

The two million euro Western Region Audiovisual Producer’s Fund – or WRAP Fund – aims to support local talent and increase the economic impact of the industry in the region.

One of the projects which have received investment here is a documentary called ‘Screamers’ by Dot Television and Marcie Films.

This is in pre-production and will be shot across Donegal and Sligo.

Another is called The Winter Lake, which has just completed production in Sligo.

Development Manager of the WRAP Fund Sarah Dillon, says they are delighted to give local talent a platform.
