Bizzers toast Irish co-production plan

IFTA London is launched

Irish and Brit industryites mingled at BAFTA headquarters Aug. 31 to toast the launch of the Irish Film & Television Academy’s new initiative, IFTA London. Jim Sheridan joined with Ken Loach, producer Rebecca O’Brien, helmer Dearbhla Walsh and Irish thesps Elaine Cassidy, Allen Leech and Robert Sheehan to welcome in the new creative network, designed to foster productive relations between the Irish and U.K. industries.

So excited was IFTA chief exec Aine Moriarty about the venture that when she welcomed in newly appointed Irish Film Board CEO James Hickey, she mistakenly dubbed him the chief exec of IFTA before quickly rectifying the error.

Onstage, Hickey quipped, “Well, I’ve got two new jobs very quickly” before extending his congrats to the people at IFTA.
