Screen Ireland / Fís Éireann is the national development agency for the Irish film industry investing in talent, creativity and enterprise. The agency supports and promotes the Irish film industry and the use of Ireland as a location for international production.
Our role sees us directly involved in the creative process of Irish films from script to screen. We provide investment for the development, production and release of Irish feature films, television, animation, documentaries and short films. This funding process has helped Screen Ireland financed projects to pick up more than 100 awards at key film festivals, including Cannes, Berlin, Venice and Toronto.
The Film Commission arm of the agency attracts direct inward investment by assisting international producers with their needs while on location in Ireland.
The Screen Ireland / Fís Éireann has been an EFP member since 1997.
