“EZ Films were delighted to be awarded the MEDIA Slate Funding in 2023 and it has proved to be a fantastic way to develop our slate to an advanced stage but also a fantastic way to develop our company,” Ciarán Deeney, Producer, EZ Films. “Beyond supporting creative development milestones, the funding has also allowed us to present and pitch at markets internationally, gaining insights for the individual projects but also for our business. The award and the approval from MEDIA has proven to be a real badge of honour. It has also allowed us to make more international connections so as to co-develop and co-produce with production companies in other countries.”
