As part of an effort to maximise every opportunity presented by the unprecedented Irish showing at this year’s Academy Awards, the Irish Film Board and IDA Ireland last night (February 24th) hosted a networking event in Los Angeles.

The event was attended by representatives from US studios, distributors, talent agents, content platforms, film financiers and entertainment technology companies.

The ‘Irish Creativity and Innovation in the Limelight’ event aimed to drive investment, to promote Ireland as a production and innovation destination in Los Angeles, and to further build Ireland’s international reputation as a creative and innovation hub.

Amongst the representatives from leading technology companies, was Managing Director of Daqri, Dana Morgan.
