Irish Film Board gets €2 million budget increase
Sing Street de John Carney

The Ireland Government has increased the Irish Film Board’s (IFB) 2017 budget by €2 million to €16.47 million. IFB Chair Annie Doona said, “The Irish Government has recognised the achievement of Irish filmmakers and have demonstrated their commitment to the future of the Irish film, television and animation sectors.”

“Earlier this year, the IFB Board called for a restoration of IFB funding to 2008 levels of €20 million, which we believe is critical to building on the current success of the industry and remains a key element to the IFB strategic plan over the next five years. At our current reduced budget levels, the IFB has invested in projects, which have won major international acclaim, connected with Irish audiences and generated $150 million at the global box office over the last 18 months,” Doona added.
