Docs Ireland 3
Running from 16-19 June 2021, the third annual Docs Ireland festival will give emerging filmmakers the opportunity to meet and learn from seasoned industry experts through a series of online masterclasses, workshops, panel discussions and ‘in-conversations’.

Tickets for Doc Ireland industry pass is £15 while a student pass is £10.

There will be a focus on the critical area of archive material, with a masterclass delivered by Canadian multi-award winning visual researcher Elizabeth Klinck.

Award-winning US filmmaker Penny Lane joins Elizabeth Klinck for an in-depth interview with the acclaimed filmmaker (Hail Satan?; Sundance 2019). 

There will also be a special Interview with internationally renowned director, writer and actor, Alex Winter discussing his expansive career (Deep Web, Downloaded, The Panama Papers, Bill & Ted) along with his new film, ZAPPA

The emerging audio documentary genre will also be highlighted at this year’s Docs Ireland. A panel discussion with some of the leading commissioners will provide an overview of the current landscape for the podcast and audio doc across Ireland, the UK, and in the international markets. 

BAFTA nominated documentary filmmaker, Rachel Hooper will host commissioners and suppliers from broadcasting giants like the BBC, RTÉ and Audible during a live Meet the Audio Commissioners session.

The Docs Ireland - Northern Ireland Screen Documentary development pitch (in association with Yellowmoon Post Production Ltd) returns for the third year, presenting six feature documentary project pitches from filmmakers across Ireland, in a competition to receive an award of £7,500 towards the development of their documentary feature film. 

The second edition of the Docs Ireland Marketplace will run online concurrently with the festival, with decision makers including Autlook Films, BBC Docs, CAT&Docs, Dogwoof,  Met Film Sales, National Geographic, RTÉ, Screen Ireland, Sky Docs, Submarine Entertainment, Taskovski Films, TG4 and TVF.

Other highlights include:

BBC NI audio producer, Conor Garrett presents ‘Meet the Audio Makers’ - a panel discussion with successful audio doc makers on how they gained a foothold in the audio doc world, their career trajectories, projects, and creative process.

Documentary Funding Post Brexit - Representatives from the BFI and Creative Europe Desk Ireland will join Docs Ireland to discuss their new respective schemes, the UK Global Screen Fund and the new Creative Europe funding programme 2021 - 2027.

Short Documentary Funding Session - an opportunity to hear from a variety of funders of short documentary, who will present on how they fund short form non-fiction content, the type of content they are looking for, and best practice for engaging and working with them.
