Funding Round Up

This is a round up of loan offers from the Irish Film Board over the last few months. I do seem to recall that the Board issued a notice to the effect that there would be no production decisions made in August. Perhaps I imagined it?

I think I have noticed an increase in recent rounds of individuals and companies receiving more than one funding offer in the same round? In my next post I will have a proper look at this area, and the perception in some quarters that Board members are somehow connected with an undue proportion of projects funded by the agency.
