Première, short films from Northern Ireland

Première is a film production scheme which produces locally made short films each year. Conceived in 1997, the scheme has gone from strength to strength, producing innovative, award winning films which make creative use of Northern Ireland locations. 

Funded by the Northern Ireland Film Commission, Belfast City Council, British Screen and, this year for the first time, BBC Northern Ireland which replaces the funding provided by Ulster Television from 1997 to 1999, the Première short film production scheme is designed to showcase local film-making talent and to provide a training opportunity for new entrants and more experienced crew alike. Festivals worldwide are eager to see new Northern Ireland productions and Première offers film-makers a global audience and a stepping stone in their careers.
