ACE ROUND-TABLE IN GALWAY

galway14-seminarThis Friday at the Galway Film Fleadh, ACE held a round-table discussion about the new Irish tax scheme to replace Section 481. “The next big (tax) break” gathered 80 accredited producers & industry professionnals around a panel moderated by Simon Perry (ACE President) and composed of James Hickey (CEO of the Irish Film Board), Marcos Kantis (Schiwago Film, Germany), Jean-Yves Roubin (Frakas Productions, Belgium) and Frank Groot (Rinkel Film, Netherland). A description and evaluation of the European key tax schemes, the session led to a very rich and practical conversation about incentives and the efficient use of rebates in Europe.
