Screen Skills Ireland Welcomes COVID-19 Production Guidelines

Monday, June 29th, 2020

Screen Skills Ireland, the skills development unit within Screen Ireland, is delighted to welcome the publication of COVID-19 Production Guidelines for Film, TV Drama and Factual genres of the creative screen content industry.

The guidance, published by Screen Producers Ireland with funding from Screen Skills Ireland’s Screen Stakeholders Funding Scheme, will help to translate government protocols and public health guidance into a practical approach tailored to screen content production. The guidelines will continue to be updated as required and as government and public health advice evolves.

Productions will use these guidelines to develop their own individual protocols and production-specific risk assessments.

Screen Skills Ireland will provide free online training courses based on the guidelines to support the safe return to production. Further information on these course will be shared in the coming weeks on our website and social media channels.

The guidelines can be accessed here.
