Cultural Cinema Consortium
The Cultural Cinema Consortium (CCC) is a strategic partnership between Bord Scannan na hEireann / the Irish Film Board (IFB) and The Arts Council. The aim of the CCC is to expand out the audience for Arthouse Cinema.
To date the Consortium has invested in two major capital build programmes. The first, the Light House Cinema in Smithfield, Dublin, opened its doors to the public in May 2008 and has a wide and diverse programming schedule. The second, Solas in Galway, commenced in 2008 and has received strong support from Galway City Council.
During 2007, the Consortium commissioned a report on the roll out of Digital Cinema in Ireland, to identify key areas for public support. The report details the technological advancements in the distribution and exhibition of film and it outlines a number of options for the IFB and The Arts Council to consider in order to provide new opportunities for audiences of cultural cinema in Ireland.
