Lunn – TV and Film industry is becoming a lucrative sector for our economy

Alliance Enterprise spokesperson Trevor Lunn MLA has said that the Northern Ireland television and film industry is becoming a lucrative sector for our economy. His comments were made as a new Dracula movie began filming in Northern Ireland this week.

Trevor Lunn MLA said:”It is great to see another major movie being filmed in Northern Ireland. I am sure that it will be a big boost to our economy and help create many jobs in several different sectors.

“I would like to wish every success to those behind this new Dracula movie and I hope they will return to Northern Ireland with future projects.

“This movie will further enhance our reputation as an attractive location for television and movie projects to be filmed. It is building on the success of other projects such as ‘The Fall’, ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Closing the Ring’, that have all received critical acclaim. I am sure that we will be able to attract other projects to Northern Ireland given our great facilities, locations and highly skilled workforce.

“In the space of a few years, the film industry has become a highly lucrative sector of our economy. I hope that we will see continued support from the Executive for Northern Ireland Screen and these films, to help further boost our economy.”
