Can your business tap into the Offaly Film Industry?

Film can bring business worth tens of thousands to an area, with production companies using hotels, catering companies, taxis and restaurants; for instance the recent TV pilot in Charleville Castle saw 130 cast and crew come to Tullamore for 6 days using a wide range of services from local petrol stations to hotels and restaurants. The FilmOffaly Vendor Card will give local services the opportunity to tap directly into that industry for extra business.  FilmOffaly is the first port of call for film productions looking for locations and services in Offaly. Businesses who offer a reasonable discount for their services and partner with the FilmOffaly Vendor Card,  will be in a prime position to gain the film industry’s attention.
