Arts Council of Ireland Film Project Award for HSP

The Homo Sapiens Project by Rouzbeh Rashidi has been granted a Film Project Award by the Arts Council of Ireland. The award supports projects commencing in 2013.

The purpose of this Film Project Award is to support the making of high quality and creatively ambitious film work of an experimental nature that would be unlikely to receive support from other funding sources. The work should be filmic and be made with a view to engaging and challenging audiences. It should be made for public exhibition in cinema settings in the first instance, though secondary exhibition in other contexts and on digital platforms may follow.

Also they are experimental in form or content, non-narrative in structure and involve the creative use of new technologies.
