The Irish Film Board Gets A Name Change

SHARE:


Sitting down to watch any future Irish movies is going to be a slightly different experience from here on in, with the Irish Film Board, whose logo always heralded home grown features, getting a name change to Screen Ireland, in response to the boards work now extending far beyond the realm of traditional filming making. The Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys TD, today announced her intention to put legislation in place to formally change the name, speaking today the minister said “The Irish Film Board is our premier agency for promoting and supporting the audio visual sector. Its work extends far beyond the traditional realm of ‘film’ and encompasses the domestic and international TV sector, as well as our growing animation sector. The Irish audio visual sector has been going from strength to strength in recent years, and I believe there is huge capacity for growth. I want the agency tasked with expanding the sector further to have a name that easily communicates its responsibilities”.

Reacting to the news, Dr. Annie Doona, Acting Chairperson of the Irish Film Board said: “We very much welcome Minister Humphreys’ initiative in proposing to change the name of the Irish Film Board to Screen Ireland. We look forward to this new phase in the development of the agency and we are grateful that Minister Humphreys has acknowledged the great potential for growth in the audio visual production sector and the expanding role of the agency within it. I know that our late Chairman Bill O’Herlihy would very much have appreciated what the Minister is doing and it is a fitting tribute to him.”
