John Ford Industry Hub Welcomes Directors and Producers
28 May 2014 : Aisling Newton
Featuring a unique panel of diverse filmmakers from across the industry, the Ford Industry Hub will explore and examine Ford's lasting body of work which still proves a strong influence on modern-day filmmakers.

John Ford’s legacy to Cinema and filmmaking is indisputable and his visual skills, craft and storytelling continues to influence and resonate with filmmakers today. This Director's Hub brings together a diverse group of filmmakers headed up by a unique panel of Directors who will discuss the craft in a contemporary industry which deals with sophisticated audiences across multi-layered platforms, and reflecting on the core skills, craft and technique displayed by Ford the master, which are still incredibly effective in visual storytelling today. Chaired by Neasa Hardiman, panellists include Ben Wheatley, Kieron J. Walsh and Whit Stillman.

The John Ford Producers Panel will also take place on Saturday, June 7, at 2pm. The panel includes a number of key industry figures from across both the UK and Ireland. The confirmed panellists will focus on the challenges of making independent films and getting them out to the wider international market. Chairing the Panel is David Collins (Founder and Managing Director of Samson Films); panellists include Alan Moloney (Byzantium, Albert Nobbs), Laura Hastings Smith (Hunger), Andrew Reid (Head of Production, Northern Ireland Screen), James Flynn (Calvary, Penny Dreadful) and Sue Bruce Smith (Head of Commercial and Brand Strategy at Film 4).

Further information about both events, plus the Ben Wheatley Masterclass, discussions, screenings, and events, can be found on the 2014 John Ford Ireland Film Symposium, which runs from June 6 – 8, is available here.
