The Irish Film and Television Academy (IFTA) will this week host an ‘In Conversation with…’ Emmy award winning Irish director, Dearbhla Walsh. Also coming soon - the Academy will welcome screenwriter Graham Linehan for an ‘In Conversation with…’ in August and will host to a Pro MAC Trends Makeup Masterclass.

IFTA ‘In Conversation with…’ Dearbhla Walsh takes place Wednesday, July 21st. Walsh has worked on drama series for several television channels in Ireland and the UK, including episodes of ‘Eastenders’, ‘Shameless’ and ‘The Tudors’. In 2009 she was the recipient of a Prime Time Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for ‘Little Dorrit’, the 14 part adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel of the same name. Most recently, Walsh completed work on ‘The Silence’ which last week concluded a four night consecutive run on BBC One.

The ‘In Conversation with…’ event will focus on Directing for Television and will examine Dearbhla's approach to the creative process, the challenges encountered whilst filming, her take on working outside Ireland and the collaborative effort required in television production. ‘The Guard’ producer, Ed Guiney will lead the Academy’s discussion.

Another upcoming ‘In Conversation with…’ affair will take place on August 26th, with award winning Irish screenwriter Graham Linehan as the subject of the evening. Graham is an IFTA, Emmy and BAFTA award winning screenwriter who has brought audiences television comedies such as ‘Father Ted’, ‘Black Books’ and ‘The IT Crowd’. Graham will travel from the UK to share his knowledge, tips and tricks for writing comedy for the small screen with IFTA Academy Members.

September will see IFTA members invited to join top MAC Make-up artists for an exclusive showcase of the upcoming trends in the world of Make-up for the catwalk and the screen. The Pro MAC Trends Masterclass will see technique and style discussed in depth alongside live demonstrations of new Pro MAC products.

In addition, a one-day IFTA forum entitled ‘Broadcasting as Gaeilge‘ will take place in October and will see television producers, programmers, broadcasters, directors, writers and sales agents invited to explore and discuss the key issues facing Irish language broadcasting including the possibilities and potential for local and international producing, programming, and distribution.
