Dave Farrell - Managing Director
Tile Media is a dynamic new departure for 'old hand' Dave Farrell who, working alongside Stephen Rooke, built Tile Films into a leading international producer of factual TV programming.
Dave has a long list of credits to his name as producer and sometimes writer/director. Programmes that he has produced which have received Irish Film and Television Academy (IFTA) nominations include; Ireland’s Nazis (RTE/History Channel), The Ghosts of Duffy’s Cut (Smithsonian Networks) and Death or Canada/Fleeing the Famine (RTE/History Channel), which was also nominated for four Gemini awards in Canada. Cromwell in Ireland, which Dave was an Executive Producer on, won the IFTA award for Best Single Documentary in 2009.
His most recent credits include producing and researching A Terrible Beauty (TG4), Death on the Railroad which he co-directed and wrote (PBS/RTE), The Mystery of the Lost Ship (Channel 5/TG4) and the Tile Media produced TV pilot Jubilee Nurse, which is currently in development.
