Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB) has welcomed the announcement of an additional €1.5 million for Ireland's film, television and animation sector.

This is an overall increase of 9%, bringing the capital budget, which is invested in film, television and animation projects, to €14,202,000 for 2018.

Ireland's creative sector has gone from strength to strength and employs more than 7,000 full-time job equivalents and valued at over €.5 billion in annual turnover.

Welcoming the increased budget, Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board Chair, Dr Annie Doona, said: "We very much welcome Minister Humphreys' consistent support for developing the potential of the Irish screen industries. We look forward to being in a strong position next year to increase our support for the development and production of Irish films and animation. Last year, production activity reached the highest level on record due to the strong and consistent Government support the sector has received and we remain ambitious for the future growth of these creative industries. We look forward to continuing to work with Minister Humphreys on the Creative Ireland initiative to strengthen Ireland as a centre of excellence for film, television and media production."
