BSÉ/IFB and Enterprise Ireland Support 'Ireland on Screen' at MIPTV

2nd Apr 2012
Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB) is once again supporting the Ireland on Screen booth in partnership with Enterprise Ireland at this year's MIPTV which is taking place in Cannes this week.

MIPTV gives the world its first taste of the newest programmes, freshest formats and latest innovations for TV, internet, mobile and all video-rich platforms. This year there will be a diverse selection of Irish representation including production and post production companies as well as Irish broadcasters in attendance at the market including RTÉ, Windmill Lane Pictures, Screen Scene and Screentime Shinawil.  MIPTV is attended by 12,000 key decision makers from over 100 countries.  It provides a stage for Irish producers to network and explore new co-producing opportunities across the full range of AV content.

The aim of BSÉ/IFB at the market is to meet with international producers and broadcasters, reinforcing Ireland's strong profile as a destination for television on the back of a wide number of successful projects which chose Ireland as a film location last year.

IFB and Irish producer attendance at MIPTV and MIPCOM has contributed to attracting projects such as ‘Primeval', ‘Sinbad', ‘Ripper Street' and ‘Vexed' to Ireland, delivering in excess of €25m of foreign direct investment since 2010 from these four projects alone.

The IFB's Film Commissioner, Naoise Barry, and Chief Executive James Hickey is attending.
