Irish Academy Celebrates 10 Years
20 Dec 2013 :
As 2013 draws to a close the Irish Film & Television Academy (IFTA) reflects on its milestone 10th year in 2013, consolidating its work in recognizing and rewarding excellence, and showcasing to the world Irish creative talent and production and building its annual education and learning programme of events and activities.

One of the significant successes of the year was the great showcase of the Irish industry's work within the Academy's 10th annual IFTA Awards Ceremony earlier this year, which attracted a record audience of 1.24 million viewers in Ireland alone, promoting and showcasing Irish creative talent and homegrown production to the public at large, both in Ireland and internationally.

Throughout the year, the Academy hosted almost 28 IFTA Members Events across its Education & Learning Programme. These included public interviews & masterclasses with international talent such as Steve Coogan (Philomena), director Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones) and screenwriter Guy Hibbert (Prime Suspect); panel discussions with the creator and producers of BBC series Ripper Street and industry breakfast with Bob Collins of BAI. IFTA London also hosted 'A Celebration of Irish Craftmanship' which included panel participants such as Ros Hubbard (casting director), Lorna Marie Mugan (costume design), director Aisling Walsh cinematographer Suzie Lavelle and Aidan Farrell (colourist).

IFTA brought the spotlight again on Ireland when it hosted the 2nd annual John Ford Ireland Film Symposium (The renowned filmmaker whose legacy continues to influence and inspire young filmmakers across the globe) with Screenings, Masterclasses, Public Interviews and Lectures. The Symposium has thus featured guests including Peter Bogdanovich, Bertrand Tavernier, Joel Cox, Sean Bobitt, Julian Jarrold, Dan ford, Patrick & Marisa Wayne (son and daughter of John Wayne), and more.

IFTA has announced several events of it's early 2014 programme, including an 'In Conversation with Allen Leech', the launch of new daytime discussion series 'Lunchtime Labs' with IFTA-winning screenwriter Malcolm Campbell, First Look Screenings of Irish feature films 'The Stag', 'Run and Jump' and international titles including Brian Percival's 'The Book Thief' and the first of their quarterly Industry Breakfasts.

The 11th Irish Film & Television Awards will take place on Saturday 5th April 2014 in Dublin with Call for Entries are open until January 13th.
