IMRO Music for Screen Seminar – Deadline: Today, Dec 6th
06 Dec 2017 :
The Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) and the Mechanical Copyright Protection Society of Ireland (MCPSI), in association with Screen Training Ireland, are hosting a seminar designed to offer attendees a full overview of music licensing for audiovisual productions, and to explore effective strategies and options for the licensing of music.

The event takes place on Tuesday, December 12th from 4-6pm at IMRO, Copyright House, Pembroke Row, Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2. This is a free event.

The seminar will explore wider issues around music and screen content, and offer a broad picture of the landscape of music for the screen. The seminar will include an overview on music licensing from MCPSI, and a panel discussion around music licensing and supervision in the context of recent Irish productions.

Panel members confirmed for the event are:
