Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council supports emerging filmmakers under the dlr First Frames film commissions.

The Lighthouse, written and directed by Ciaran Hickey and produced by Bjorn Mac Giollaa, is currently in post production. It is the story of a young girl who embraces the magic of her seaside town when she befriends the mysterious entity living in the lighthouse by the pier.  The team has strong connections to the county as the director/writer and a lot of team members are graduates of the National Film School in IADT.

dlr First Frames scheme is a unique opportunity to encourage filmmakers to create exciting, dynamic and engaging screen stories. The scheme aims to provide funding and support to emerging filmmakers looking to develop ambitious and creative short films based in the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown region. There was huge interest with over 80 applications for the two awards.

This scheme is fully funded by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council Arts Office and dlr Local Enterprise Office, and managed by Film Base.  Additional equipment and facilities support is provided by the National Film School, IADT.
