Ireland and UK combine star power

TWO of Hollywood's most respected filmmakers joined ranks in London yesterday to support an initiative fostering collaboration between Irish and British film and TV production.

Jim Sheridan and Ken Loach joined other well-known actors and directors at BAFTA headquarters to launch a new initiative by the Irish Film and Television Academy (IFTA) -- IFTA London will host master-classes and industry networking events to encourage collaboration between producers on both sides of the Irish Sea.

Pictured at yesterday's event are Natalie Dormer, Robert Sheehan, Ciaran Hynes, and Aine Moriarty, CEO of IFTA.
