02 January 2010: The Arts Council regrets the passing of Michael Dwyer

The Arts Council has expressed its regret at the passing of Michael Dwyer, who has died following an illness.

Speaking today, Pat Moylan, Chairman of the Arts Council, said: "With the death of Michael Dwyer the Irish film sector and cinema audiences in Ireland have lost a true friend and advocate. Driven by a personal passion for film, Michael played a key role in ensuring that audiences throughout Ireland had access to the best in non-mainstream cinema programming for over thirty years. With Access Cinema (formerly the Federation of Irish Film Societies ) and the Dublin International Film Festival, he has left a lasting legacy for film in Ireland. We offer our sympathies to his partner and family."
