Amcomri Entertainment €10m RHIFF Investment Fund

Taking place at King John’s Castle on Tuesday 16th August, and ahead of the RHIFF’s tenth year – which runs from October 26-31, was a special launch of both a new partnership between the Richard Harris International Film Festival (FHIFF) and Amcomri Entertainment Inc.

Amcomri Entertainment Inc. will make available a new film investment fund of €10m to entrants of the 2022 Richard Harris International Film Festival, while also announcing confirmation as the primary commercial sponsor for the Richard Harris International Film Festival.

The funds can be invested across a number of film projects as selected by the Amcomri Entertainment Film Committee, with funding available to entrants of the 2022 RHIFF as well as previous entrants to the festival. The investments are for feature films (not shorts), animations and documentaries.

Robert Price, Chief Executive Officer of Amcomri spoke to the audience of dignitaries and the local film making community about how this new relationship with the RHIFF will work.

“At Amcomri, we work to encourage project dialogue for film financing, publishing and international distribution and sales so we are thrilled to sponsor this year’s RHIFF.

Was delighted to have worked once again on the creation the the awards show for the Richard Harris International Film Festival 2020. As the festival couldn’t go ahead last Oct for obvious reasons the task to ensure the awards show still went on was made.

Congratulations to all the filmmakers who were nominated as well as the final winners.

The show went live on YouTube on Friday 30th April and a link can viewed below.

Huge thanks to our media and events experts who offered an insightful and detailed overview of media work placements today in the #Millenniumtheatrelit . Thanks to Ciarda from FreshFilmFestivalMeghann from #limerickpost Seb from #Richardharrisiff and Entrepreneur Eoin Everard. #creativefilmlit #musictechnology#studentworkexperience Limerick Institute of Technology – LIT#litcareers

For the second year running, leaders in local media, events and festivals were invited to the Millennium Theatre to speak to Creative Broadcast & Film Production students on opportunities of work experience.

This valuable session gives the students opportunities to network and decided on what career paths they might like to take during their third year on the programme. In the inaugural year, a number of students availed of working on the Richard Harris International Film Festival as well as the Hear Say Festival where they gained knowledge and connections to industry leaders.

With the RHIFF approaching, the staff and students of the CBFP will once again be producing the acclaimed awards for for the festival. This being the third year for the RHIFF, the awards show will be 10 years old, as it was originally designed for the Limerick Film Festival (LIT Film Festival) back in 2010. As always we are hard working on the design of the awards show and look forward to streaming live on the night as well as recording for later release on the platforms.

More Soon.

This week marks the third year of the Creative Broadcast and Film Production Programme (CBFP) at LIT Moylish. Over the past three years many changes that were made for this programme (formerly the Video & Sound Technology Programme) have flourished and have helped increase the student numbers in applying each year. This year being no exception.

With the merger of the in-house Limerick Film Festival with the Richard Harris International Film Festival, The Annual Student Showcase event, Studio Tours, In-House production Unit, as well as special guest lectures and industry workshops, students of the CBFP have more opportunities to learn, network and test their skills in industry standard practices than ever before.

Also with the fact that the CBFP programme is now a part of the Department of Design at Limerick School of Art and Design, there will be further opportunities for collaboration with other design programmes in both the Clare Street and Clonmel campus’.

While this years cohort is now full and beginning in the coming days, (and we are excited to see the new talent) I would encourage other second level students (5th & 6th years) to check out the events that are happening during this academic year at the Moylish campus, including the Open Days and The Richard Harris International Film Festival in October (which the students and staff produce the now acclaimed Live Streamed Awards Show), and the student showcase which will take place in the spring of 2020.

Also keep an eye on the programme facebook page for info on the guest lectures and workshops which some are open to the public as well as current students.
