This year, Galway Film Centre with CÚRAM, the SFI Centre for Research in Medical Devices at NUI Galway are offering funding to filmmakers interested in producing a documentary that engages with research into cardiovascular illnesses and stroke, currently underway at CÚRAM.
The ‘Science on Screen’ scheme, a funding strand for creative documentaries set in the world of science, is now in its third Year. The scheme will 100% fund one 26 minute film with a budget of €35,000 that promotes the public understanding of science.
