On Friday March 10th at 2pm, we will be inviting a panel of industry guests to discuss access to the audio-visual industry and answer any questions you may have. These guests currently include :

 Sarah Dillon, Production & Development Executive with  the Irish Film Board

Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB) is the national development agency for Irish filmmaking and the Irish film, television and animation industry, investing in talent, creativity and enterprise. The agency supports writers, directors and production companies across these sectors by providing investment loans for the development, production and distribution of film, television and animation projects.

 David Kavanagh, CEO  of  the Writers Guild of Ireland

The Writers Guild of Ireland (WGI) is the representative body in Ireland for writers for the stage, screen, radio and digital media. The Guild is an organisation run by writers for writers. We keep our members informed of news about the industry through our blog and fortnightly electronic newsletter, offer advice on contracts, organise talks and meetings, set up information sessions about issues of concern and lobby government agencies on matters pertaining to playwrights and screenwriters.

 Paddy Hayes, Producer with  Magamedia

 MAGAMEDIA is a small tribe of independent award-winning filmmakers based in the West of Ireland. Magamedia has carved out a reputational niche for itself as a hungry, up-and-coming drama and doc producer that is prepared to get its hands dirty in the subject matters it will tackle. Our editorial line is simple: we worship at the feet of the great God Story. When cinematographer Conrad L. Hall was asked how he knew where to point the camera he answered: "I point the camera at the story". Our development and production philosophy here at Magamedia is similar - our energies are devoted to vigorously and rigorously pursuing great stories across drama and documentary.
