Introduction

Sources of Film Financing within Eire Bord Scann�n na h�ireann/ The Irish Film Board "All film - from the lowest budget short to the biggest international epic - is an artistic enterprise.

European Funding and Support MEDIA Plus MEDIA Plus follows on from the work done by MEDIA I and MEDIA II. It is a European Union funding scheme managed by the European Commission in Brussels. MEDIA Plus runs from January 2000 until December 2005 and includes funding provision for film festivals but the kind of support and size of budgets had not been finalised at the time of research. European Co-ordination of Film Festivals (ECFF) The European Co-ordination of Film Festivals is a membership organisation with the objective of developing and strengthening the sector through promotion and collaboration. It is not necessarily a funding body, although it does provide support its members through ECFF programming projects, conferences and staff training.
