Dig Where You Stand 2019 – Call Out

Galway Film Centre is delighted to announce the return of Dig Where You Stand, the documentary funding scheme for young filmmakers in Galway City and County.

The Dig Where You Stand scheme to date has produced four documentaries Grá & Eagla by Caitríona Ní Chadhain and Console My Heart by Will Smith and James Ward in 2017 and cultúr by Andrew Thomas and Kevin Cawley and Recommended Rapper by Caoimhin Coffey in 2018. These films have enjoyed successful local, national and international screenings and following on from this, both Galway City Council and Galway County Council have renewed their funding support for the scheme.

This commitment allows Galway Film Centre to continue providing this opportunity for young Galway filmmakers. Through the Dig Where You Stand scheme we are striving to develop a pool of young filmmaking talent in Galway and offering emerging local filmmakers a chance to develop their talent as documentary makers.

Dig Where You Stand is a phrase with its roots in Sweden, popularised by author Sven Lindqvist, based on the idea that by researching and learning about their own history and the place where they are living, individuals and groups will regain more control over the understanding of their lives and their inter-connectedness. By exploring the richness and potential of our own communities and embracing their diversity, the intention is that young Galway filmmakers will find interesting and worthy documentary subjects in both Galway City and County.

The selected filmmakers will be mentored by Gort-based filmmaker Jill Beardsworth. Jill is a founding member of Twopair Films and has produced the films Children of Allah, Apples of the Golan, and When All Is Ruin Once Again, which won the ‘Best Cinematography in an Irish Feature Award’ at the Galway Film Fleadh.

Manager of Galway Film Centre, Alan Duggan, noted “Galway Film Centre is committed to developing and nurturing fresh filmmaking talent in Galway. The Dig Where You Stand scheme offers young and emerging Galway filmmakers a professional progression route and the selected filmmakers will also have the opportunity to connect with their European counterparts through Galway Film Centre’s membership of the Screen Talent Europe Network. We look forward to seeing the documentaries develop over the coming months”.

Tá lúcháir ar Ionad Scannán na Gaillimhe a fhógairt go mbeidh an scéim mhaoinithe Dig Where You Stand, do scannánóirí óga le cláir faisnéise a dhéanamh, ar ais i gContae agus i gCathair na Gaillimhe.

Léiríodh dhá chlár faisnéise faoi scéim Dig Where You Stand 2017 darb ainm ‘Grá & Eagla’ le Caitríona Ní Chadhain agus ‘Console My Heart’ le Will Smith and James Ward agus dhá cinn eile faoi scéim 2018 darb ainm ‘cultúr‘ le Andrew Thomas agus Kevin Cawley agus ‘Recommended Rapper‘ le Caoimhin Coffey. D’éirigh go maith leis na ceithre scannán a taispeánadh go háitiúil, go náisiúnta agus go hidirnáisiúnta agus dá bharr tá Comhairle Cathrach na Gaillimhe agus Comhairle Chontae na Gaillimhe araon tar éis tacaíocht mhaoinithe a chur ar fáil don scéim arís i mbliana.

Mar gheall ar an tacaíocht seo, tá Ionad Scannán na Gaillimhe in ann leanúint le deis a chur ar fáil do scannánóirí óga na Gaillimhe. Féachtar leis an scéim Dig Where You Stand le stór tallainne déanta scannán a fhorbairt i nGaillimh agus le deis a thabhairt do lucht déanta scannán as an áit, atá ag teacht chun cinn, a gcuid tallainne a fhorbairt mar lucht déanta scannán faisnéise.

Is nath cainte as an tSualainn é Dig Where You Stand a chuir an t-údar Sven Lindqvist chun cinn agus atá bunaithe ar an smaoineamh gur féidir le daoine aonair agus le grúpaí níos mó smachta a fháil ar an tuiscint atá acu ar a saol agus ar an nasc atá acu le chéile trí fhoghlaim agus trí thaighde a dhéanamh faoina stair féin agus faoin áit ina bhfuil cónaí orthu. Is é is cuspóir leis go n-aimseoidh scannánóirí óga na Gaillimhe ábhar do chláir faisnéise a bhfuil spéis agus fiúntas ag baint leo i gCathair agus i gContae na Gaillimhe trí fhéachaint ar shaibhreas, ar acmhainneacht agus ar ilchineálacht ár bpobail féin.

Is í Jill Beardsworth atá lonnaithe sa Ghort a dhéanfaidh meantóireacht ar na scannánóirí a roghnófar. Is duine de bhunaitheoirí Twopair Films í Jill agus léirigh sí na scannáin Children of AllahApples of the Golan, agus When All Is Ruin Once Again, a bhuaigh ‘Best Cinematography in an Irish Feature Award’ ag 30ú féile de Fhleadh Scannán na Gaillimhe i mbliana.

Dúirt Alan Duggan, bainisteoir Ionad Scannán na Gaillimhe “Tá Ionad Scannán na Gaillimhe tiomanta do thallann nua scannánóireachta a fhorbairt agus a chothú i nGaillimh. Cuirfidh an scéim Dig Where You Stand bealach gairmiúil forbartha ar fáil do scannánóirí óga agus do scannánóirí atá ag teacht chun cinn i nGaillimh agus beidh deis ag na scannánóirí a roghnófar ceangal a dhéanamh lena macasamhail féin san Eoraip tríd an mballraíocht atá ag Ionad Scannán na Gaillimhe sa líonra Screen Talent Europe Táimid ag súil leis na cláir faisnéise a fheiceáil ag forbairt sna míonna atá amach romhainn”.
