Actress Amy was joined by other leading names in the TV industry for the second annual Fís TV Summit on Thursday, November 8th. Guests include representatives from RTE, BBC, TG4 and Screen Ireland.

Speaking at the FÍS Summit, Amy Huberman told the crowd that she:

Always wanted to do something creative, but I didn’t know where to start but the key was to just start, I wasn’t a very structured start but there is a freedom to that. I was able to try stuff out as people just didn’t know what I was doing so there was no pressure”. 

Also speaking at the Fís Summit Linda Cullen, Producer Coco Television told the audience about the importance of character in Room to Improve:

In the first few years it was the format and the narrative that largely drove the show but from about year 5 it became more about character, and that character was Dermot Bannon”. 

The summit is a further acknowledgement of the vibrant TV industry here in the West of Ireland. Organised by Galway Film Centre, this one day summit plays host to international and national speakers exploring this year’s theme, Entertainment.  In just 2 years, FÍS TV Summit has become a key component in the UNESCO City of Film/Ceantar Scannán calendar. 

Amy is an IFTA winning actress, who has had two best-selling novels published with Penguin, is most well known for her work internationally as an actor and writer.  Amy’s newest TV comedy series Finding Joy, which she also created and wrote, recently wrapped back in August and is currently being broadcast on RTÉ. ‘Finding Joy’ is produced by Treasure Entertainment for RTÉ in Ireland and Acorn TV in the UK, and is due for release in late 2018.

The star was was joined by Rebecca O’Flanagan, Producer/Creator of Finding Joy for a panel discussion on the journey they took together to bring this project to fruition, 'An exploration of the journey to 'Finding Joy'.
