The IFB have announced the new additions to the production and development team, taking over from previous project managers Keith Potter and Mary Callery.
Haddad is currently a senior executive with Creative England, having previously held the roles of Creative Executive and Head of Creative Affairs with Pathé.
Regan’s experience as a development producer and script editor has seen her work across projects such as ‘My Name is Emily’ (Simon Fitzmaurice) and ‘The Lodgers’ (Brian O’Malley).
James Hickey, Irish Film Board CEO:
“Celine and Dearbhla will bring a wealth of creative experience to the Irish Film Board’s production and development team. I am confident their experience will particularly benefit Irish writers, directors and producers working across film, TV drama and animation. I’m delighted to welcome them both to the team as we work together to invest in creative talent, build on the current success of the industry and achieve our key goals as outlined in the recent IFB five year strategic plan.
“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank outgoing project managers Keith Potter and Mary Callery for their hard work and dedication over the last four years, which has been a particularly successful period for the Irish film industry.”
