Wexford County Council is inviting applications for the new role of Film and TV Coordinator as part of major development plans for the screen sector in the county.

The Council will soon be announcing proposals to establish the area as a hub for screen industries, in a drive to attract more international and indigenous film and TV productions to the region and nurture home-grown talent.

The first step will be the appointment of the film coordinator who will oversee the implementation of a Screen Sector Strategic Plan.
