The IFI, in association with Screen Producers Ireland, is holding a discussion on the state of documentary production in Ireland today. As audiences change and publishers look for the next big hit, Irish and international speakers will discuss the challenges and successes they have experienced in getting documentaries made. The types of content that receive funding; who is commissioning and distributing content; and the impact this has will be forefront in the discussion. Panelists include Cormac Hargaden, Loose Horse (The Man Who Wanted to Fly); Siobhan Ward, Crossing the Line Films; Loren Syer Willoughby, Off the Fence Distribution; Sean Mac Giolla Phadraig, RTÉ Group Head of Factual; Ciaran Kissane, BAI; and James Hickey, Screen Ireland. It will be hosted by Laura Slattery of The Irish Times.
Part of the IFI Documentary Festival 2018, which runs from the 27th – 30th of September. Full details here.
