David Yates, Pete Docter & Gareth Edwards In Dublin For Screen Directors Guild Event

Award-winning directors David Yates, Pete Docter and Gareth Edwards will all be in Dublin in January to take part in the Screen Directors Guild of Ireland’s Annual Meeting of Directors.

The trio will take part in the three-day event which will feature talks on technology expositions. The discussions will be aimed at helping Irish film and TV creatives becoming technological leaders.

BAFTA-winning Yates, who worked on four of the eight ‘Harry Potter’ films, has worked extensively in the British film industry, lending his directorial skills to BBC series ‘State of Play’ and TV movie ‘The Girl in the Café’. Yates worked closely with Irish father and son acting duo Brendan and Domhnall Gleeson in the last ‘Harry Potter’ films.

Oscar-winning director Docter has worked on Disney films such as ‘Toy Story’ and ‘Up’, the latter of which he picked up an Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film in 2010. His next project is an untitled Pixar project, which is scheduled for a 2015 release.

Emmy-nominated Edwards, who directed the acclaimed sci-fi thriller ‘Monsters’, is currently in pre-production on a remake of ‘Godzilla’, which is slated for a 2014 release.

The Screen Directors Guild of Ireland has also announced that it will feature a Digital Biscuit event this year, in which a series of 20 programmed talks and technology expositions will be held over three days in January.

During this event, the public will also get an opportunity to engage with premiere product launches of latest cameras, tablets, computers and software.

Director and chairman of SDGI Ciaran Donnelly, who has recently wrapped filming on The History Channel series ‘Vikings’, said: “'This is an opportunity for directors to continue to embrace the future of the digital age”.

Digital Biscuit will take place from January 24-26 2013. For more information see .
