WEST Cork's film industry is on the rise.

On the latest episode of The Southern Star's In The News podcast, Dylan Mangan focuses on how the film industry is developing in West Cork

The region has some of the best locations in the country, and more and more production companies are deciding to shoot their next projects here.

We hear from Star reporter Kieran O'Mahony, who has been reporting on the film scene for the newspaper, along with two of West Cork Film Studio's directors, Édaín O'Donnell and Steve Park. We also chat to producer Gráinne Dwyer, who has been shooting a short film on the Beara peninsula in recent weeks.

Produced and presented by Dylan Mangan.
