The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse, written and directed by Ciaran Hickey and produced by Bjorn Mac Giollaa, was funded under the 2017 dlr First Frames Scheme. 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.

Update on dlr First Frames Scheme 2018

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is extremely disappointed to learn about the liquidation of Filmbase; Filmbase, who had over 30 years’ experience in the sector, was contracted by the County Council to manage all aspects of the dlr First Frames Scheme for emerging filmmakers. The liquidation of Filmbase has now unfortunately led to the suspension of the dlr First Frames Scheme until further notice.

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is committed to advocating for the support of emerging filmakers working in the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown area, and we will work to highlight relevant film opportunities and provide information or updates via our ebulletin and website.
