dlr First Frames 2020/21

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is pleased to announce the award winners for dlr First Frames Scheme 2020/21. A Runner and La Tumba will be supported under the Scheme.

A Runner is written by Ivan Cush and will be directed by TJ O’Grady-Peyton. TJ’s credits include Wave which he co-directed with Oscar winner Benjamin Cleary. A Runner focuses on a troubled teenager who every night evades questions of worth, as well as the dangerous atmosphere of his broken home, by going on gruelling night-time sprints. La Tumba is a comedy written by Jonathan Hughes and directed by Natasha Waugh.  It follows an Irish Forestry Ranger who finally gets a chance to show what he’s made of when he suspects a murder has been committed in Ticknock Forest.

dlr First Frames is fully funded by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council’s Arts Office and Economic Development Unit, and managed by the Institute of Art, Design & Technology (IADT).  Mentoring support is also provided by the National Film School, IADT along with additional equipment and facilities. The Scheme provides funding and support to emerging filmmakers looking to develop ambitious and creative short films based in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown. The films are due for completion in Autumn 2021.
