Creative industries

Northern Ireland’s creative industries sector is a fusion of exceptional talent and state-of-the-art technology.

The success of HBO's Game of Thrones is in large part due to our presence and the collaboration with the people here in Northern Ireland

Jay Roewe - HBO, Senior Vice President for West Coast Productions

The region’s fast growing expertise in all areas of TV and film production is reflected in its record of successes including HBO’s fantasy series Game of Thrones, which is currently filming Series 4 in Belfast’s Titanic Studios and other locations throughout Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland’s society is rich with musicians, writers, craftspeople, actors, designers and programmers that can create and support creative enterprise. Our universities produce around 850 graduates a year from Creative Arts & Design and Mass Communication & Documentation.

We have some 250 media production companies delivering on a global stage. Belfast’s Titanic Studios is one of the largest and most modern film and television production studios in Europe.

With world-class facilities and talent, Northern Ireland is fast becoming the location of choice for international film and TV companies including Universal, BBC, C4, UTV and a host of others.

This support is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund under the Sustainable Competitiveness Programme for Northern Ireland.
