Background[edit]

Julie Le Brocquy, born in Ireland in 1960, was educated in Ireland. She is divorced with two children and is one of Ireland's leading creative film producers. Her work has been showcased at leading festivals, been the recipient of numerous awards and received extensive distribution throughout Europe the United States and Asia. Having worked as a Bond trader for 12 years at Salomon Brothers in London and Asia she is extremely well versed in all phases of the investment process and thus brings together a unique blend of skills in both the financial and film arenas. Julie was born in Ireland to a prominent family in the arts and in business. The le Brocquy's have been for many generations strong patrons of the arts, both as supporters and as artists. Louis le Brocquy, 1916-2012,[2] was Ireland's most prominent modern artist. Sybil le Brocquy (née Staunton),[3] her grandmother was an author, a founder of Amnesty in Ireland and a major lobbyist for government support for the arts. Both are highly recognised in Ireland for their work. Her decade of experience as a producer has included partnerships with major cable networks and studios as well as ongoing independent production initiatives. She has a breadth of experience, relationships and contacts throughout the film industry that enable her to strategically produce and distribute effectively. Julie’s skills in developing creative marketing and exit strategies are ideally suited for the film sales market, as proven in her ten years of film production experience. This unique blend of financial and film disciplines enables her to maximize the potential return from a film production. Julie has travelled extensively and has lived outside of Ireland for about half her life. She spent years living in Asia and takes a particular interest in global stories and helping those without voices to speak. The filmography of leBrocquy Fraser Ltd strongly reflects her sensibilities towards Asia and the Middle East. She presently resides in Dublin, Ireland, and spends much of the year in New York.
