Irish Film Board’s Funding Choices Include Several Horror Titles



The latest round of films that have received funding from the Irish Film Board have been announced. First up is Fantastic Films and director Neasa Hardiman’s Sea Fever, which has received €700,000 in IFB production funding. The film is described, per SD, as, “…a very smart monster movie” and follows, “…a female protagonist, a gifted marine biology student who, along with her crew, encounter a large and dangerous mysterious sea creature.” Epic Pictures Group will be handling international sales.

Additionally, Without Name‘s Lorcan Finnegan has been funded €750,000 for Vivarium, a sci-fi thriller we wrote about in mid-May. The film follows, “…a couple desperate to get on the property ladder. They follow an estate agent to an out-of-town housing estate and find themselves unable to get out.

Last on the slate, at least when it comes to horror, is The Hole In The Ground, Lee Cronin’s horror thriller for SP Films starring Seana Kerslake that received €600,000.
