Mary Callery joins IFB in reshuffle
Recent staff restructure includes Emma Scott becoming production and distribution executive; IFB in pact with WME.
Irish film and TV executive Mary Callery has been appointed as the third and final project manager at the recently reshuffled Irish Film Board.
In what is expected to be the final staff adjustment, Emma Scott will move across to the role of production and distribution executive.
Callery previously served as commissioning editor for drama at RTE where she commissioned the likes of Proof, The Clinic, No Tears, Bachelor’s Walk and Paths to Freedom.
She was more recently an executive producer at Parallel Films where credits include nine single TV films for UTN/SyFy and Crown TV in the US, Ruth Rendell’s 13 Steps Down and feature The Food Guide to Love, currently in post-production.
Scott, who previously managed production funding, will now be responsible for monitoring the agency’s production slate, acting as the Irish representative for Eurimages, as well as managing the distribution support for local films.
The IFB has also confirmed a new talent and location opportunity with WME, which will see IFB film commissioner Naoise Barry working more closely with the agency on film, TV and animation opportunities in Ireland.
Patrick O’Neill, industry affairs executive and Andrew Meehan, development executive both leave the IFB this month with O’Neill setting up new distribution company Wildcard Distribution and Meehan due to purse writing projects.
