We have had so many success stories over the last few year in particular with Irish films. Now the Irish Film Board/Bord Scannán na hÉireann have launched a new five year plan that includes a call for the immediate restoration of €20 million in state funding to help with films for the future.

The five year plan entitled Building on Success details the Board’s ambitious vision and plans for its role in the currently thriving Irish film, television and animation industry. It says that increased funding is vital to its plans and says the restoration of state finance in particular will ensure that “the talent and opportunities that exist within the sector can be fully nurtured and supported”.

Earlier this year, Irish films and talent picked up a record nine Oscar nominations with an unprecedented two Irish movies in the running for the Best Film Award. According to the IFB recent global hits such as RoomBrooklynSing StreetLove & FriendshipSong of the Sea and The Lobster, have taken $140 million at the worldwide box office with audience figures estimated in the region of 18 million.
