Hosts: Keelin Shanley, Richard Crowley, Tanya Sillem

Following hugely successful events in 2014, 2015 and 2016, the IFI is delighted to again partner with the Mary Raftery Journalism Fund for a day of screenings, masterclasses and debate. The changing environment for investigative documentary filmmakers is the focus of ‘Investigations 2017: Beyond Borders’.

Over the past ten years, as online and digital capabilities have evolved, the potential for stories to move from more traditional local audiences to a global reach has grown exponentially. The digital and online worlds also offer the filmmaker access to a whole new range of resources and tools, as evidenced by the recent Panama Papers investigation which illustrated how collaboration between journalists and filmmakers can work on a global scale.

‘Investigations 2017’ will explore the challenges faced by documentary film-makers when working outside their own culture as well as the opportunities which arise. It will look at the potential of cross-border collaboration and discuss the breadth of outcomes which emerge when filmmakers look beyond borders.

Presented by Mary Raftery Journalism Fund and IFI in association with the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI), Screen Training Ireland and RTÉ.

€5 per event. €10 to attend all three events. To avail of a €10 ticket, please contact the IFI Box Office on 01 679 3477 or in person.
