Screen Commission Attends AFCI Locations Expo
28 Jan 1999 :
Roger Green, Chief Executive of the Screen Commission, will be attending AFCI Locations Expo '99 in Los Angeles where the Screen Commission will be taking a stand. The Commission, which is made up of people from many facets of the film industry, including film producers, professional advisors to film in the areas of finance, tax, accountancy, film organisational executives and two well known actors, Sinead Cusack and Pierce Brosnan, was established by Síle de Valera, Minister for Arts, Heritage, Gaeltacht and the Islands in the March of last year.

It is the Commission's task to provide information about locations, casting, crew, equipment, facilities and investment in film, as well as becoming a contact point for a number of regional Commissions throughout Ireland. On top of these essential services, the Screen Commission's other major role is the promotion of Ireland as a film location internationally. This includes 'selling' the tax advantages and other incentives in Ireland as well as highlighting facilities, professional crews and wealth of film-making experience available in Ireland to outside production companies and while in Ireland to facilitate those incoming production companies.

Over 5000 film and television professionals seeking locations for upcoming productions attend the exhibition, which is organised by the Association of Film Commissioners International. It is the only exhibition of its kind in the world. Roger can be contacted at stand number 504.

The Minister for Arts, Heritage, Gaeltacht and the Islands, who is leading an Irish film industry trade mission to Los Angeles, will visit the Screen Commission stand on Sunday 21st February. The Minister will be hosting an evening reception in Los Angeles to launch the Screen Commission of Ireland in the U.S.A.
