SPI Addresses Oireachtas Committee on Regional Development, Rural Affairs, Arts and the Gaeltacht
07 Sep 2016 :
Screen Producers Ireland appeared in front of the Oireachtas Committee on Regional Development, Rural Affairs, Arts and the Gaeltacht today, September 7th.

The organisation outlined the value of indigenous productions to the economy and discussed how the Culture 2025 framework could be used to create a comprehensive vision for the audiovisual sector.

Barbara Galavan, SPI CEO, commented:
“Indigenous productions make a significant and positive cultural and economic impact on Ireland. Independent producers and production companies employ several thousand people and are an intrinsic part of an eco- system that nurtures the type of creative talent that attracts big-budget productions. It is imperative that these jobs and creativity are protected and, in order to do this, it is necessary for all stakeholders to collaborate in creating a vision for the sector. Culture 2025 could be used as a catalyst for the creation of this vision.”

“An all-industry approach to developing a strategy to foster sustainable growth and assist indigenous companies to scale up to a level where they can compete internationally would be a very positive outcome from the Culture 2025 process. It is a chance for all stakeholders in the audiovisual sector to come together to produce a collaborative plan for growth. It is time for the industry to think globally and adapt a strategy to take advantage of the many opportunities that exist for quality content internationally.”

“Additionally, it is essential that Government offers security of funding to Irish creative talent by increasing Irish Film Board funding and grasping the TV License Fee nettle through the introduction of the Household Media Charge,” concluded Galavan.
