Through the course of 2017 and into this year, production spending outside Dublin has reached just under €50m.

The IFB supported production output of €84m in 2017, marking an increase of nearly 60% on the previous year.

Five creative co-productions are part of the organisation’s production slate for 2018.

High-profile international productions using Irish locations over the past year have included a BBC TV adaptation of Little Women, US dystopian drama Into the Badlands, spy thriller The Rhythm Section and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which filmed at various locations along the west coast’s Wild Atlantic Way.
