Ireland On Screen Film Season To Begin On RTÉ
17 Aug 2012 :
Neil Jordan's 'Ondine' will receive its network premiere as part of the season
RTÉ is to showcase a number of Irish films from this weekend as part of its Ireland On Screen season in association with the Irish Film Board.

The season will include network TV premieres of Neil Jordan’s fantasy drama ‘Ondine’; wedding comedy ‘Happy Ever Afters’ and Irish director Ian Power’s ‘The Runway’.

Other Irish hits such as ‘Dancing at Lughnasa’, ‘Song for a Raggy Boy’ and ‘Michael Collins’ will also be shown over a two week period beginning tomorrow night with director Jim Sheridan’s ‘The Boxer’ on RTÉ One.

Dermot Horan, director of broadcast & acquisitions, with RTÉ Television, said: “We are delighted to be working with the Irish Film Board again on this Ireland on Screen initiative and to also continue our investment in this key Irish industry. We hope this broad selection of exciting and popular Irish films will appeal to a wide range of viewers.”

RTÉ’s most recent Irish film investments, along with the IFB and BAI, include ‘Run and Jump’ from Samson Films which was filmed earlier this summer and an adaptation of ‘The Sea’ from acclaimed Irish writer John Banville.

James Hickey, chief executive of the Irish Film Board, added: “It’s really important to us that Irish films find an audience not only in cinemas but through other media including television. We are especially pleased to see so many IFB funded feature films supporting Irish talent in the line-up.”
