Gheobhaidh an buaiteoir duais airgid €5,000 agus ina theannta san, luach €2,000 d’fhearas taifeadta ar cíos chun a scannán a thabhairt chun críche. Bíonn bliain ag buaiteoir FÍSÍN chun dul ó script go scannán, agus faigheann an scannán sin a chéad thaispeáint ag Féile na céad bhliana eile.

Chuaigh cuid díobh siúd a bhí ar ghearrliosta FÍSÍN ar aghaidh chun a gcéad scannán a léiriú, agus aontaíonn siad gur thacaíocht mhór FÍSÍN  dóibh. Léiríodh dhá ghearrscannán Gaeilge ó ghearrliosta FÍSÍN 2015 ag Féile Scannán an Daingin 2016: RINCE  le Medb Johnson, a fuair cabhair ó Bhord Scannán na nÉireann, agus CAS TIMPEALL le Glen Gannon.  Is é Antoin Beag Ó Colla, fear eile ar ghearrliosta FÍSÍN, a scríobh RÚBAÍ, go raibh rath mór air.

Bhí UISCE BEATHA le Elaine Kennedy ar ghearrliosta FÍSÍN 2016. Rinne Elaine an scannán ar a costas féin, agus bhuaigh sé duais An Scannán is Fearr ag an Richard Harris International Film Festival.

English Version:

Físín is a unique opportunity in Ireland for filmmakers, writers and artists to submit a script idea in the Irish language. The winner receives €5,000 PLUS €2,000 in equipment hire to make their film. The Físín winner is given one year to move from script to film, returning to the following festival for a premiere of their work.
Físín films have been doing very well outside of Dingle IFF, they have screened at many other festivals and received many awards.

Físín winners have gone on to be exhibited at many film and arts festivals, these include; The Belfast Film Festival, The Galway Film Fleadh, The Dare Media Underground Film Festival, The Dublin International Short Film Festival, The Offline Film Festival, Kerry Film Festival, The Boston Irish Film Festival, Fastnet Short Film Festival, Spleodar Arts Festival, Nenagh, Ballymun Axis, Five Lamps Arts Festival, Dublin City Council’s Culture Night, Club ghaeilge, Lexicon Dún laoghaire, Earagail Arts Festival, Dobhar, Cork Puppetry Festival, Borradh Buan Ballymun Axis, Glór na nGael Oireachtas, Draíocht, Fingal Film Festival Touring Roadshow.

Físín runners up have also gone on to produce their first film and have credited the Físín process to their success. Two Irish language short films screened at Dingle IFF in 2015 were Físín shortlists; RINCE by Medb Johnson, (the film was funded by The IFB) and CAS TIMPEALL by Glenn Gannon. RÚBAÍ was written by Físín finalist Antoin Beag Ó Colla and went on to great success being selected to Tribeca Film Festival, Best Irish Short at Foyle Film Festival, Fastnet, IFTAs and was screened on TG4. Elaine Kennedy’s film Uisce Beatha was a finalist at the 2016 Físín pitches and went on to win the Best Film at The Richard Harris International Film Festival.
