Low Budget Short-List

Last week Northern Ireland Screen announced the five projects picked for this year's Northern Ireland Screen Low Budget Fiction Fund:

  • Honeymoon Hangover – by Cecilia McAllister
  • The George Best Reunion Tour – by Tom Jonstone
  • Wee Buns – by Christine Murphy
  • Keeping Mum – by Deirdre Alexander
  • Outpost Alaska – by Scott Martin
By April one script will be selected to go into production, with a view to completing principal photography by the end of 2009.

This is the third year of Northern Ireland Screen's low-budget fiction scheme. The first recipient was Peacefire, which just won the Prix Special Du Jury award at the Angers European First Film Festival.
