Ronan Cassidy Appointed Project Manager at Film Limerick
19 Jun 2014 : Deirdre Molumby

The Limerick City of Culture in partnership with Behind the Scenes, has announced the appointment of Ronan Cassidy to the role of Project Manager-Film Limerick.
This new position has been established to promote and encourage Limerick to realise its potential as a film producing hub. It also aims to develop a number of projects that form part of the legacy for Limerick in 2014 during its year as National City of Culture. Behind the Scenes now replaces the Film Pillar of Limerick City of Culture.

At the heart of the Film Limerick Project is a unique and exciting scheme to produce two short films using Limerick as a location. With a budget of €15,000 each the selected projects will be filmed later this year. This will facilitate the long term goal of encouraging both established and emerging film makers to come to Limerick.

Ronan Cassidy commented on his new role, stating: “I am deeply honoured to have been given the opportunity to take up the post of Project Manager -Film Limerick. Having been involved in various roles in the world of the arts, film and television production, I’m thrilled with this opportunity.

“I’m looking forward to working with the staff of the City of Culture and Behind the Scenes. I’m confident, in taking up this position that I will be able to contribute to the promotion of Limerick City, as a film making location and the development of the film industry locally.”

In collaboration with Behind the Scenes, Ronan will now be responsible for encouraging local and national filmmakers to tell their stories through the film scheme; developing an educational and training programme for emerging film makers; and promoting film culture throughout Limerick.

He will also support local film festivals, promote local films in international competition, and positioning Limerick as a location for international audio-visual productions by offering advice on locations, creative resources, as well as with technical assistance and financial incentives.

Simon McGuire, co-founder of Behind the Scenes, commented “We would like to congratulate Ronan on his appointment as Project Manager. Since its inception in 2011, Behind the Scenes has strived to promote film, TV and video production in Limerick and the Mid-West area.

”The Film Limerick Project presents a unique opportunity to cement Limerick as a film making hub of the Mid-West. We look forward to working closely with Ronan, City of Culture and the film makers to establish an enduring legacy for Limerick.”

Welcoming the announcement, Art and Culture Manager Sheila Deegan, said: “On behalf of the Limerick City of Culture I am delighted that someone of the calibre and experience of Ronan Cassidy has agreed to serve as Project Manager for Film Limerick. His challenge will be to oversee the selection and production of two short films. His long term objective will be to bring Limerick as a film location to the attention of Irish directors, writers, actors and producers which in turn will increase the employment potential of the local audio visual sector.”

Hi all
We would like to say a big ‘Hi’ to our friends at the ‘Richard Harris Film Festival’

Here is a breakdown on what the festival is about from their website:

This new Irish film festival will celebrate the life and works of Dickie Harris.  Dickie was not only a well-known Limerick and Irish actor but singer, theatrical producer, poet and film director of immense ability and charisma.  This film festival is to celebrate his unique talent in the city where he was born and raised.  Along with viewings of his most iconic films such as ‘The Field’, ‘This Sporting Life’, ‘Unforgiven’ and ‘Camelot’, the festival will be a showcase for young film makers, feature filmmakers from the Irish Diaspora, theatrical performers, poets, singers and writers.

“On behalf of the organising committee I would like to thank you for your interest in the inaugural Richard Harris International Film Festival.

The idea for this festival emerged during a meeting about ‘the Gathering’ in Limerick city last October. The festival was inaugurated to ensure Richard Harris’s enduring legacy was honoured in his native city. The committee felt that an annual film festival that promoted Irish film makers living abroad was the most apposite way to honour Richard.

We strongly believe that the Irish film-making diaspora should be encouraged toshowcase their work here in Ireland -in this the year of ‘theGathering’.  However ‘the Gathering’ doesn’t have to end this year and we believe this festival will be part of the festival calendar for many years to come. Plans are already well in place to make next year’s festival bigger and even better as Limerick celebrates its designation as City of Culture.

Ireland punches above its weight in terms of  acting and film-making talent, Michael Fassbender, Colin Farrell, Liam Neeson and Saoirse Ronan continue to fly the flag for the Irish film industry but it was Richard Harris that paved the way for these stars in Hollywood.

Richard Harris was an actor, singer, theatrical producer, writer, poet & film director of immense ability and charisma. His versatility was evident in his varied film roles whether he was playing a Roman Emperor, a wizard, a tenant-farmer or a mutineer.

Harris’s career and personality necessitated a peripatetic life but Limerick and the Shannon region remained close to his heart – therefore we are delighted to bring Richard home this December.

We hope that this is a festival that can showcase beautiful Limerick City and its environs toan international audience.

Most of all we hope to see you here in Limerick on December 6th to the 8th.”

Rob Gill (Festival Director)
