IFTA host Women in Focus in Partnership with Matheson & Google
04 Oct 2016 : Katie McNeice
Keynote Speaker Miriam O'Callaghan
The Irish Film & Television Academy is hosting Women in Focus tomorrow Wednesday October 5th, at The Foundry, Google HQ, and welcomes panellists from the sectors that impact our industry and society on a daily basis; film, broadcasting, technology, communications, education, fintech, legal, and publishing.

The IFTA Women in Focus Conference is a morning discussion and forum exploring how women in media can influence audiences; what the future looks like for the next generation; and how we as an industry can positively influence our society to ensure that from script to screen, from content to digital platforms, online and social media, women are adding their perspective and their voices to business and everyday life.

IFTA CEO Áine Moriarty will welcome attendees and speakers, followed by a keynote address from RTÉ Broadcaster and Television Presenter Miriam O’Callaghan (Prime Time, Saturday Night with Miriam).

The Influence of Female Voices on Society & Young People
This panel will be chaired by Broadcaster & Producer Elaine Crowley (Midday), and consists of Model and TV Presenter Vogue Williams (Wild Girls), Head of New Business Sales Google Sarah Byrne, Matheson Partner Ann-Marie Bohan and Girl Crew Co-Founder Áine Mulloy.

Darren & Colin Thornton: Director & Writers of feature film ‘A Date for Mad Mary’
The creators of the award-winning feature film, which debuted in Ireland at Galway Film Fleadh this year and is currently on release in cinemas in Ireland, will discuss what inspired them to pursue a film with no less than four female lead roles.

‘A Date for Mad Mary’ is a feature film debut for the filmmakers, and earned both the Audience Choice Award and Bingham Ray New Talent Award for lead actress Seána Kerslake (Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope) at the Fleadh.   

Irish Film and Television - Back to the Future
IFTA-winning Director & Screenwriter Neasa Hardiman (Happy Valley, Z: The Beginning of Everything) is set to chair this panel which, with a focus on female voices and women in media, discusses what the future holds for media, film & TV and online content.

Speakers on this panel are IADT President and Irish Film Board Chair Dr. Annie Doona, Director of RTÉ Global Michelle Spillane and IFTA CEO Áine Moriarty.
