Amcomri Entertainment Inc. (AMEN) has become the lead sponsor of The Richard Harris International Film Festival (RHIFF) while announcing the creation of a new film investment fund of €10m.

Amcomri Entertainment has confirmed that the funds can be invested across a number of film projects as selected by the AMCOMRI FILM COMMITTEE and will be available to entrants to the 2022 RHIFF as well as previous entrants to the festival. Eligible projects for potential funding include feature length narrative films, documentaries and animation. Short films will not be eligible.

The fund was announced at a launch event last night, 16 August, at King John’s Castle in Limerick, Ireland.

Robert Price, Chief Executive Officer of Amcomri Entertainment “At Amcomri we work to encourage project dialogue for film financing, publishing and international distribution and sales so we are thrilled to sponsor this year’s  RHIFF. We want to continue to develop long-term relationships which can grow to multi-deal co-production activity and are eager to receive the applications to the AMEN Film Investment Fund.”

Eoghan Burke, Vice President, Sales, 101 Films International, “We are extremely proud to become the lead sponsor of The Richard Harris International Film Festival. We have been aware of the high calibre of submissions to the festival over the past years so are excited to see the applications we receive in 2022 and going forward.”

Zeb Moore, Director, The Richard Harris International Film Festival, “We are delighted to be partnering with such a renowned and innovative organisation as Amcomri, to mark our 10th year. RHIFF and Amcomri are compatible, as we are both committed to discovering new talent and promoting emerging film-makers. The proposed facility is an unique opportunity for independent film-makers from all over the world to potentially access funding and/or distribution. The ambition is that this collaboration will find the next Scorsese or Sheridan.”
