About this Event

What does changing legislation mean for the industry? How can filmmakers avail of Section 481 to get their films across the line? WFT Ireland, in conjunction with the Cork Film Festival, hosted a special legal event for filmmakers on Thursday, 14th November 2019. The day saw a presentation by Aideen Burke from Irish entertainment law firm LK Shields. In this podcast of the live event, Aideen goes through the ins-and-outs of Section 481.

This event was possible thanks to the generous support of the BAI, the Cork Film Festival, and LK Shields.

Section 481 is a tax credit, incentivising film and TV, animation and creative documentary production in Ireland, administered by Ireland’s Department of Culture and the Revenue Commissioners
