IFTA Now Recruiting for the Position of Head of Film & Television
29 May 2019 : News Desk
Irish Film & Television Academy
The Irish Film & Television Academy (IFTA) has opened applications for a new post as Head of Film & Television.

Reporting to the Academy CEO, the HEAD OF FILM & TELEVISION requires excellent administration, management and communication skills to work with and manage a small team and extended team of contractors.  This position will also involve working closely with the Academy CEO to deliver the new 5-year strategy for the Academy and the industry and to oversee the annual Academy programme of events including the IFTA Awards. 

IFTA is a not for profit all-Ireland organisation with a membership of 1,240 Irish industry professionals.  In addition to Awards ceremonies, IFTA has a year-round programme of learning events and initiatives that offer unique access to some of the world’s most inspiring talent, through workshops, masterclasses, lectures, discussions, workshops and mentoring programmes in Ireland.  The Academy works to celebrate, honour and promote the achievements and growth of Irish creative talent by identifying and celebrating excellence, while nurturing new talent and enabling learning and creative collaboration.

IFTA previously announced that its new Board had made the decision to undertake a 5-year Strategic Development Plan (2019 – 2023) for the Academy to support the new growth within the Irish screen industry.  Future plans include expanding the Academy’s 12 month Excellence & Learning programme; expanding the membership; John Ford Ireland; strategic partnerships and funding for high-calibre annual Award Ceremonies; establishing an Academy Building and housing the Academy archive.

The new Head of Film & Television will oversee key elements of the new 5 year strategic Development plan, which is in the final stages of completion.

The new position has opened up after long-standing IFTA director Deirdre Hopkins, made the move to the UK to work fulltime with BAFTA.

Speaking about the new post, IFTA CEO Áine Moriarty said:

“Deirdre is obviously a big loss to us here at IFTA but we are completely supportive of her move to the UK and her decision to work with BAFTA and the British industry.  We will continue to partner with BAFTA, but our focus at all times will be on the Irish industry as we have done for 15 years, and to nurture new Irish talent through our masterclass programme and reward the excellent achievements of the Irish at home and abroad.”

“We’re excited about this next important phase of development for the Academy and the Irish industry.  The foundation has been laid over the past 15 years, and the industry as a whole has worked hard to support Irish creative talent and to build recognition and exposure for the Irish industry.  There are very experienced managers and executives now within the industry and we look forward to appointing the role of Head of Film & Television at the Academy who will bring a fresh approach to the next 5-year Strategic Development Plan”
