The Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys TD [pictured] has announced her intention to put legislation in place to change the name of the Irish Film Board to Screen Ireland.
Minister Humphreys 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”.
