PANEL:TOWARDS GENDER EQUALITY: WOMEN IN FILM AND TV IN IRELAND (11.45)

For some time now the stark disparity between the success of men and women in creating and producing Irish stories for film and television has been apparent. Considerable work has already been done to identify areas of gender inequality and to propose strategies to address the imbalance. Much has yet to be done. This panel will consider the value of women’s work as story tellers in film; will provide available information on women writing, directing and producing in Ireland; will consider support for these endeavours by broadcast and other commissioning agencies; and will review plans by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/ The Irish Film Board to correct gender anomalies in film production in order to achieve gender equality within a declared timeframe.
Panel: Chair Siobhán Bourke (Irish Theatre Institute); Dr. Susan Liddy (Mary Immaculate College Limerick); Dr. Annie Doona (Acting Chair, Bord Scannán na hÉireann/The Irish Film Board); Francine Raveney
