The FilmOffaly Vendor Card was launched in Offaly this week with a special video message from Brendan Gleeson.

Offaly County Council’s latest business initiative makes a compelling case in how the arts can creatively contribute to economic growth. The FilmOffaly Vendor Card is unique in Ireland, with businesses offering discounts to production companies in order to attract them into the county to film.

Speaking at the launch, the Chairperson of FilmOffaly, Cllr. Nichola Hogan remarked, “We firmly believe that we need to be innovative and creative in terms of promoting film into Offaly, but also to support indigenous filmmaking in the county and that is something we have seen a huge rise in recently.”
