Following hugely successful events in 2014 and 2015, the IFI is delighted to again partner with the Mary Raftery Journalism Fund for a day of screenings, masterclasses and debate.
Investigations 2016 explores the challenges of bringing controversial, complex and often conflicting stories to the large and small screen.
With an overall focus on legal and ethical responsibilities, contributors will share first-hand experiences, discuss best practice and consider whether documentaries can make a real impact
and effect change in society. The Mary Raftery Journalism Fund was established in memory of investigative journalist Mary Raftery, whose pioneering investigative work uncovered serious abuses and scandals within Irish life. The aim of the fund is to promote more in-depth investigative coverage of issues that were close to Mary’s heart. It offers an opportunity for journalists to carry out detailed investigations into certain aspects of Irish society and to expose any injustices that might exist.
Presented by Mary Raftery Journalism Fund and IFI in association with the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI), DCU and RTÉ.
