Two new names have been added to Galway Film Centre’s Talking Production Seminar - Stephen Woolley, the producer of ‘The Crying Game’, and Anders Landström, the producer of ‘The Bridge’, the TV crime show from Sweden. The seminar takes place in The Connemara Coast on Thursday November 27th and Friday November 28th.

Stephen Woolley began his career selling ice cream in a cinema and went on to produce ‘Absolute Beginners’, ‘Scandal’, ‘The Company of Wolves’, ‘The Miracle’, ‘The Butcher Boy’, ‘The Good Thief’, ‘The End of The Affair’, ‘Michael Collins’, ‘Interview With The Vampire’, ‘Mona Lisa’, ‘The Crying Game’, (for which he was awarded Producer of The Year by the Producer’s Guild of America in 1992) and ‘Breakfast on Pluto’. He also served as Executive Producer on ‘The Neon Bible’, ‘The Hollow Reed’, ‘Fever Pitch’, ‘Purely Belter’, ‘Little Voice’, and ‘Made In Dagenham’. He will be interviewed on Friday, November 28th in the afternoon by Lelia Doolan.

Anders Landström is the producer behind the Swedish-Danish co-production ‘The Bridge’ which aired on both BBC4 and TG4 recently. Anders will join James Flynn (Octagon Films- ‘Love/Hate’, ‘Penny Dreadful’), Gub Neal (‘The Fall’/Ex Head of Drama at Channel 4) in a discussion looking at key aspects of Television Production chaired by Paddy Hayes (Magamedia – ‘Corp + Anam’).
