Who We Are

Bread&Circus is a Dublin and Los Angeles based film production company.

Formed from the art-film collective Dogmedia B&C's first film was the ambitious transmedia project Shamrocracy (IRL/UK/HU) derived from over 120 hours of material and shot over a four year period during the Irish financial crisis. It premiered at The Galway Film Fleadh where it was described as a ‘jaw-dropping satire on Irish politics.’

Most recently B&C completed a feature documentary on the largest regeneration project in Europe, 'The 4th Act.' Bread&Circus is currently developing a slate of international co-productions in the U.S. and Europe.
