Screen Producers Ireland have produced a range of policies which will promote growth in the film and television sector.
This policy seeks to change the ‘Copyright Act’ so that copyright holders receive retransmission fees from cable operators in Ireland.
This policy seeks a change in the Audio Visual Media Services Directive (AVMS) to ensure channels that sell “opt out” advertising into other territories are regulated to ensure spend commitments are made to locally produced content.
This policy supports dedicated film fund for Ireland's National broadcaster, RTÉ, through new legislation or a regulated commitment.
Seeks increased funding for Ireland's national screen agency to support the creative content production sector.
Supports the principle of adequate and secure funding for PSBs, and the introduction of the publisher-broadcaster model.
Supports the continuance of Ireland's film and television production tax incentive, Section 481, identifying potential improvements and continually communicating to Government to ensure competitiveness.
SPI has submitted a Pre-Budget Submission for Budget 2019 calling on Government to extend Section 481 beyond 2020 and increase Screen Ireland funding.
SPI attended the Oireachtas Committee Culture, Arts and the Gaeltacht in Janurary 2018 to discuss working condistions and developmetns in the Film Industry.
SPI attended the Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Change and Natural Resources in November 2016 to discuss funding for our Public Service Broadcasters.
