Our vital film industry must be protected post-Brexit

Editor's Viewpoint

Television series like Game Of Thrones and feature films like Star Wars have given Northern Ireland's film industry global exposure. It is seen as a good location for making movies or television dramas with a core of excellent technical and acting talent, and the industry offers the prospect of employment and an economic boost to the province. But this feelgood factor could be under threat because of Brexit, which could hamper production companies crossing the border with the creation of tax barriers.

It is unexpected consequences like this which means that politicians on both sides of the border must engage earnestly on the way forward.
