irish film 2015 / production catalogue
CHAIRMAN’S NOTE
I am delighted that my first full year as Chairman of
Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB)
has been one of growth and continued success for Irish
creative talent and for the Irish film, television and
animation industry. With the support of the IFB, the
hard work and creative endeavours of Irish talent in
front and behind the camera has been rewarded with
both local and international recognition and awards.
As the development agency for film, television and
animation in Ireland, the IFB is committed to supporting
Irish talent, creativity and enterprise. In conjunction with
the Irish Government’s continued support for the industry
with the advent of the new film and television tax credit in
2015, the Board are focused on the future evolution of Board
Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board.
With this in mind, we have begun the consultation
process on a new Five Year Strategic Plan for the agency,
which will focus on the future goals for the agency
itself, the development of the industry overall and
the outcomes the IFB aims to deliver for Irish creative
talent, Irish and international audiences and the Irish
digital economy.
With the publication of the new strategy document in
2015, we hope to ensure that the IFB continues to provide
a strong foundation for the making of film, television
and animation in Ireland.

nternational Recognition for Irish Film
As we begin 2015, we do so on the back of
a very successful year for Irish film, television
drama and animation. Films, telling Irish
stories, have been enjoyed by audiences
and recognised across the globe for their
excellent work throughout 2014. The year
began at Sundance with four IFB funded
films in selection, garnering strong reviews
and achieving major North American sales for
both Calvary and Frank. Irish films and stories
continued to be represented at all of the major
festivals and markets from Berlin to Cannes,
SXSW, Annecy and Toronto. The year finished
up with a major focus on Irish film at the Les
Arcs European Film Festival and co-production
market in France in December.
A large number of Irish films have also been released
worldwide this year, particularly in the US. Calvary had
a very strong opening weekend at the US box office
when it was released in August, with a worldwide
release rolled out by Fox Searchlight. Other films to
be released in the US and elsewhere this year include
Frank and Life’s a Breeze (Magnolia Pictures), The
Canal (The Orchard), Jimmy’s Hall (Sony), The Summit
(IFC) and Song of the Sea (GKids), all representing
major US deals and audiences for these films.
Investing in Irish Creative Talent
Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB)
remains focused on developing Irish creative talent both
in front of and behind the camera. Many Irish directors,
writers, actors and crew are succeeding on the world
stage, with the support of IFB funding.
The IFB continues to invest in feature documentaries
following on from the successes of The Summit, Rough
Rider, One Million Dubliners and Unbreakable. New
projects include a documentary featuring the legendary
jump jockey AP McCoy and a co-production, The Visit,
about the possible visit of extra-terrestrials which will
screen at the Sundance Film Festival this January.
A number of Irish actors who started their careers
on IFB funded productions in Ireland have seen their
Irish Film and Television Animation
Because of IFB investment, Irish children for generations
to come will also have the opportunity to see Irish stories
in animation, film and television. IFB supported projects
this year include the upcoming animated feature film
Song of The Sea directed by Tomm Moore, which is one
of the most beautiful animated films I have seen, based
on Irish folklore and stories.
Rising stars to watch out for in 2015 who have been
working on IFB funded productions include Moe
Dunford (Patrick’s Day), Charlene McKenna (Ripper
Street), Sam Keeley (What Richard Did), Peter Coonan
(The Guarantee), Aisling Franciosi (Jimmy’s Hall), and
Barry Keoghan (Mammal). Both Sam and Aisling were
also listed as part of the prestigious Screen International
‘Stars of Tomorrow’ line-up and Moe Dunford is the Irish
‘Shooting Star’ at the Berlin Film Festival in February.
The IFB is the largest funder of the Irish animation
industry in the state, investing in both animated films
and television series for young children. Successful preschool animated TV shows, developed and produced
in Ireland, include Wildernuts produced by Kavaleer
which showcased at Annecy this year and Puffin Rock
starring the voice of Chris O’Dowd and produced by
Cartoon Saloon.
Other established Irish actors who returned to work on
major Irish features included Domhnall Gleeson and
Saoirse Ronan in Brooklyn, Colin Farrell in The Lobster,
which filmed on location in Kerry in the spring of 2014.
We hope to see Jamie Dornan in The Siege of Jadotville
which is set for production in 2015.
High Levels of Production Activity
IFB’s new catalogue Irish Film 2015 – In the
Spotlight showcases fifteen Irish features, eleven coproduction features, four animated TV series, four feature
documentaries, one international TV series, five webisodes
and eleven short films all of which were produced this year
with IFB support. The IFB invested €10 million generating
production expenditure of over €40 million in relation to
IFB funded projects in 2014. The IFB has been awarded
the same level of funding in 2015 as it received in 2014.
The overall figures for the industry in 2014 show that
production activity for the independent film, television
drama and animation sector has increased significantly
exceeding €200 million in 2014, reaching the highest
production activity levels on record.
The new Section 481 film tax credit (replacing the
investor based film and television incentive) came
into effect on 1st January 2015. The new benefit of
up to 32% of qualifying expenditure which includes
all persons working in Ireland will provide enhanced
support for film TV drama and animation production
and is a strong reflection of the Irish Government’s
support for the sector. The IFB has been working
closely with the Revenue and the production sector in
developing the detailed arrangements for the new film
and television tax credit and will continue to do so as
the new scheme is rolled out.
International Production
2014 saw high levels of foreign direct investment with
a large number of high-profile film and TV productions
filming on location in Ireland. Major TV productions
including the third series of Vikings and Ripper Street,
as well as a second series of Penny Dreadful all
continued production here. The forthcoming Star
Wars: The Force Awakens also chose Ireland as a film
location, using the stunning backdrop of Skellig Michael
off the coast of Co. Kerry.
Irish Audiences for Irish Films
Irish films telling important Irish stories were also a
success at home with eighteen Irish films released in
Irish cinemas in 2014. Calvary took over €1.6 million
at the Irish box office and The Stag made more than
its total budget at the Irish box office taking over
€600,000, with both films receiving much critical
acclaim. The Guarantee telling the story of the bailout
of the Irish banking system was one of the first Irish
live cinema events. The world premiere of the film and
live Q&A were screened across eighteen locations
throughout the country. The Guarantee will be
broadcast on TV3 this year. We are looking forward to
seeing Glassland, Song of the Sea, Brooklyn and Sing
Street in Irish cinemas over the coming months.
Irish films broadcast on RTÉ and funded by the IFB
have achieved strong audience figures. RTÉ 2, in
partnership with the IFB broadcast a number of Irish
films on a prime Saturday night slot from September.
What Richard Did was the last film broadcast before
Christmas. Feature documentaries were also a hit with
RTÉ audiences. The award-winning documentary films
The Summit, Rough Rider, One Million Dubliners and
Unbreakable are examples of projects which received
record ratings when they were broadcast on Irish
television this year.
Training & Catalyst Project
Screen Training Ireland, managed by the IFB, provided
thirty-five courses which were attended by over
1,200 participants. Major training events included
Screen Leaders, the VXF Summit and two successful
storytelling programmes for animation and live action.
Screen Training Ireland has a new and refreshed
website and the IFB will be launching a new report on
screen training in 2015 which will look at skills needs
and the funding of screen training in Ireland.
The IFB announced the commissioning of three
successful films for the new Catalyst Project scheme.
Catalyst Project offered up-and-coming filmmakers the
opportunity to compete for three low-budget feature
film funding awards. Over 400 directors, producers and
writers participated in the initial stages of this project
which included two days of training with masterclasses
from Jim Sheridan and Lenny Abrahamson.

Future
The primary role of the IFB is to invest in the
development of Irish talent in front of, and behind the
camera and to ensure that Irish audiences have the
opportunity to see Irish stories on film. In 2014 there
was a wide public debate about Irish film. The IFB is
very proud of the Irish films we have supported and
believes strongly in the strength and depth of the work.
I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to
engage with and support the creative talent working in
the sector. Keeping Irish film culture at the heart of Irish
life is our key objective and the IFB looks forward to
continuing the conversation in 2015.
In 2015 we will announce a new Five Year Strategy
for the agency which will build on recent successes.
As Ireland moves ahead into economic recovery, the
Irish film, television and animation sector, which has
grown steadily during the economic downturn, will
have an important role to play in terms of representing
Irish culture, telling Irish stories, creating Irish jobs and
promoting Irish talent on the international stage in the
year to come.

profiles rise this year. Jack Reynor, recognised for his
performances in IFB funded films What Richard Did
and Dollhouse, saw his international star rise further
in one of the lead roles in Transformers which became
a worldwide box office hit this year. Jack has since
appeared in the Irish film Glassland, which will be
screened at the Sundance Film Festival this January
and is scheduled for a 2015 release. HIGHLIGHTS

Brooklyn is Nick Hornby's adaptation of
Colm Tóibín’s best-selling novel of the same
name. It is the empowering story of one young
woman’s discovery of her own identity and
how the choices you make can define the rest
of your life. It explores the epic theme of 20th
century immigration, what it means to uproot
yourself into an alien culture, how that changes
you, and what remains steadfastly the same.

his story follows the same 11 minutes in the lives

modern society: a sexy actress, a Hollywood film director,
an old painter, a hot-dog vendor, a promiscuous courier,
a young percussionist, a jealous husband, a boy who
doesn’t know his father, a poor woman giving birth, a weary
ambulance crew, and a dog. Around them a vibrant city
teems with juxtapositions. Some characters are shown just
as they are about to make life-changing decisions, others
are idly passing time, caught in the midst of their day‐to‐day
routines. What they all have in common is an enigmatic
sighting of the elusive dark spot, seen in the sky earlier that

The lives of the women and children within
this enclosed world are changing utterly.
Tana Bana is a day in the life of Varanasi, the
fabulous and decrepit Ganges city where
Hindu pilgrims bathe at dawn and where
cremation fires burn long into dark. Following
families living with economic hardship and
the rise of fundamentalism, we explore how
the Moslem community engages with the
changing roles of women. The film questions
prevailing Western attitudes to the Moslem
world, while subtly challenging our own
attitudes to men’s and women’s relationships.
