Women in Film & Television Ireland to host three events at Cork Film Festival
12 Nov 2019 : Nathan Griffin
Women in Film & Television Ireland
Women in Film and Television Ireland (WFT Ireland) in partnership with Cork Film Festival will hold several events to help inform, inspire and celebrate women in the film and television industry.

"Women in Film and Television Ireland is delighted to be heading down to the Cork Film Festival again, always a great event,'' said Dr. Susan Liddy, Chair of WFT Ireland. "Earlier this year Cork Film Festival led the way by being one of eight Irish film festivals to sign the 5050x2020 Parity Pledge for gender equality and inclusion which was launched at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, so they're good partners in the push for 50/50 across the industry. We're really looking forward to catching up with our members,  supporters and the festival team." 

WFT Ireland will hold a special legal event for filmmakers on Thursday 14th November 2019 at 3:00 pm at the Maldron Hotel 93 South Mall, Cork, T12 EE72. Led by Aideen Burke and Jeanne Kelly of the entertainment law firm LK Shields the presentation will be on Copyright Law and Section 481, a tax incentive for film and TV production in Ireland. The presentation will be followed by a legal clinic for WFT Ireland members on issues that relate to film and TV production. WFT members can sign up for 10-minute consultations with the law firm. 

A panel of leading Irish and international film programmers delve into the 50/50 by 2020 initiative, the gender parity and inclusion pledge which was launched at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. This day-long event features case studies and panel discussions which will promote fresh thinking amongst attendees and to inspire them to be proactive in promoting their own film work. Speakers include: 

  • Anna Bogutskaya, Festival Director, Underwire Festival
  • Fiona Clark, Director and CEO, Cork Film Festival
  • Diane Henderson, Deputy Artistic Director, Edinburgh International Film Festival
  • Susan Liddy, Chair, Women in Film & Television Ireland

Thursday evening, WFT Ireland will celebrate with a drinks mixer at 8:30 pm at the Cellar Theatre, Mardyke Entertainment Complex Sheares Street, Cork, T12 CX7A.

"The voice of Irish women has never been so clear and so articulate: we stand together for an equal and inclusive film industry and nothing less is acceptable anymore," said Dr. Liddy.

Producer/Director and WFT Ireland board member, Vanessa Gildea, will be moderating a panel called Working with the Archives, during Cork Film Festival’s Doc Day on Friday, 15 Nov 2019. An assembly of leading documentary directors and producers will discuss their experience and creative approaches to using archival materials.
