A New Start: In a move welcomed by Ireland's film industry, the Dublin government has decided to revive the state-run Irish Film Board, abolished nearly six years ago, after Ireland won two Hollywood Oscars. The board has offered no "seed funding" for films since 1987. Director Neil Jordan, celebrating his Oscar for writing "The Crying Game," applauded the government's decision and told Irish state radio: "If there had been any Irish investment in 'The Crying Game,' it would have made a profit." The other Irish Oscar went to Irish-born makeup artist Michelle Burke ("Bram Stoker's Dracula"). Ireland also won two Oscars in 1990 for the Daniel Day-Lewis film "My Left Foot."
