That love of Irish film has been a constant ever since, and whilst at Embankment I have worked with a brilliant coterie of Irish film-makers, including Thaddeus O'Sullivan's The Miracle Club, Emer Reynolds' Joyride, and Lisa Mulcahy's Lies We Tell.”

“I look forward to joining Screen Ireland, supporting the work of world-class storytellers - those well-established, those starting out, and those soon to be celebrated. In thanking my colleagues at Embankment, it’s been an honour to make life-long friends, and enjoy cherished memories within such a progressive team," Martin added.

Recent Irish film acquisitions for Embankment have been Thaddeus O'Sullivan's The Miracle Club, Emer Reynolds' Joyride, and Lisa Mulcahy's Lies We Tell.  Prior to Embankment, Greg's background has been in development and production, including films for Working Title such as Bridget Jones's Baby, and Academy Award winners Darkest Hour and The Danish Girl.
