Film-makers get 'certainty'
ARTS Minister Jimmy Deenihan said the extension of the Film Tax Relief scheme until the end of 2020 will give a great deal of certainty to the Irish audiovisual sector to the end of this decade.
"This year alone a number of significant productions are filming in Ireland including 'Vikings' with a spend of €25m, and 'Ripper Street' with a spend of almost €11m," he said.
"The extension is important for both jobs that are supported by this sector and our location as a place for film and audiovisual investment."
