The Forum

A one day industry seminar, occurring annually as a key component of the Film Fair. It is a platform to explore and share ideas about what is happening in the audiovisual industry, creating an opportunity for filmmakers to come together and exchange news and views.

Pitching competition

We invite writers of all skill levels to compete in a script pitching competition for a chance to win €3000. Writers are invited to submit a 500 word synposis of their script. A shortlist of 10 writers will be chosen from the pool of entrants and invited to pitch their idea in front of a panel of judges and live audience.

Masterclasses

Each year, we host a series of masterclasses, drawn from across a variety of film industry professions. These masterclasses offer you, the audience, a chance to get up close and personal with and ask questions of successful cinema industry luminaries. Looking for acting tips? Want to find out how the director got that shot? Needing some notes on how to progress that script?

Events

Alongside our 4 main events, we also host a series of seminars, workshops and debates.
