Screen Skills Ireland has announced that five Irish companies have been selected for the 2019 Screen Leaders programme.

Industry leaders from Denmark, Estonia, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Ireland will come together on the 3rd of June for the first module of the programme, which will take place in Ireland.

The five Irish companies set to take part include: Iris Productions; Kieran Hartigan and Aonghus O'hEochaidh, Piranha Bar; Dave Burke and Gavin Kelly, Lighthouse Studios; Claire Finn and Marc Jordan, Tailored Films; Ruth Treacy and Julianne Forde and Venom; Ken Wardrop and Andrew Freedman.

Screen Leaders is a strategic company development programme for the screen industries. The programme is aimed at company leaders across the value chain in industry sectors such as: film, television, animation, games, post-production, VFX, facilities, sales, distribution and exhibition. It aims to provide participants with the skills to lead their organisation in a complex, innovative and evolving international marketplace.

From its inaugural programme in 2008 to the present, Screen Leaders has had participants from all over Ireland and the rest of Europe from leading animation, TV and film production companies. Some of them have progressed to becoming leading production companies in their respective countries, as well as participating in the screen industries on a global scale. Former participants on the Screen Leaders programme include: Element Pictures (Ireland), Brown Bag Films (Ireland), Cinenord (Norway), A Film (Estonia) and Filmore (Netherlands).

Speaking about the 2019 participants Gareth Lee, Manager at Screen Skills Ireland said:

“The companies participating in the Screen Leaders programme this year are of a very high calibre and encompass a wide array of areas within the screen industries, including a film festival, a talent agency and a number of production companies covering film, tv, documentary, animation, visual effects and post production. It is shaping up to be a great programme and we look forward to working with the participants on the strategic development of their companies. The standard of applicants for the 2019 programme was extremely high and is a testament to the good health of the audio-visual sector in Ireland and throughout Europe.”
