There are countless stories of people with successful careers who’ve had their world turned upside down by illness or a stroke of bad luck. Our support can be a lifeline in your moment of need – or simply open a door.
When Northern Ireland-based filmmaker Shelly Love had the opportunity to make her first feature film, she was a single mum with a new baby. With no savings to cover childcare, she was in a difficult situation. Fortunately, Shelly got in touch with us. We were able to help cover childcare costs during production and also help with travel expenses.
Shelly’s feature debut A BUMP ALONG THE WAY screened in Toronto and opened in Ireland in October. The film has been nominated for a Raindance Discovery Award, a category supporting those who defy the word ‘impossible’.
