Posted: March 23, 2023 in Uncategorized
A Strategic Focus to Further Develop Regional Production will be the aim of this International Film Event taking place in Limerick, which will feature Major International Studios and representatives of the film industries

Announced recently by Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin (TD), Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland, Innovate Limerick / Film in Limerick and the Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI) are delighted to announce that Limerick City in Ireland has won the competitive bid to host the Cineposium conference, a major global film conference.

AFCI’s Cineposium event, which will take place in the last week of September 2023, brings Film Commissions and industry leaders from around the world together to discuss policy, economic development and screen production and will serve as an opportunity to showcase Limerick and the west coast of Ireland to major studio execs.

Hosting the event is the result of a competitive bid process open to all AFCI Film Commission members, won this year by Film in Limerick. Over the past decade, Cineposium has taken place in the US, France, New Zealand, Spain, South Korea, Russia and Colombia. The annual Cineposium conference connects AFCI members and film industry professionals with production industry partners and policy makers worldwide.

Screen Ireland has put a key strategic focus encouraging the growth of film and television production nationwide, and recently announced the establishment of a new fund to support regional activity, ring-fencing €3.5 million from the agency’s budget for the fund. Designed to develop crew resource and skills all around the country, the fund will require commitments in the areas of Diversity and Inclusion, sustainable production and on-set initiatives.
