The event will provide an opportunity to present and discuss the findings and recommendations from the recently published report “An Examination of the Music for film & TV Sector in Ireland” authored by industry professional Sarah Glennane and commissioned by IMRO/MCPSI. Please find a link to the report here https://www.imro.ie/about-imro/research/music-screen-ireland/
