Funding announced for film companies
Two film projects based in Sligo have been selected for funding investment as part of an initiative to encourage projects being located in the West of Ireland.
Screamers, a documentary by Dot Television and Marcie Films and The Winter Lake by Winter Lake Productions/Tailored Films were filmed and produced in Sligo respectively.
The Western Region Audiovisual Producer's Fund - or WRAP Fund - is a unique initiative of the Western Development Commission (WDC) and the Galway Film Centre and was set up to stimulate the industry in the western region. It is anticipated that the projects backed by WRAP funding so far will generate in excess of €4m spend in the region.
