In addition to the online offerings for Doc Day 2021, Cork International Film Festival hosts an in-person documentary event and networking session in advance of the Documentary Gala Screening of Pat Collins new film The Dance.

A dynamic and insightful event for both emerging and established Irish documentary professionals, Doc Day Live will provide an opportunity for players in the Irish documentary industry to meet and network after a long absence, and will include a post-event networking drinks reception. Sessions include the following special events.

The three events include:

Screen Ireland: Building for a Creative Future 2024

Andrew Byrne, Project Manager with Screen Ireland, discusses Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland’s newly released strategy, with specific focus on how it relates to the documentary sector in Ireland.

Director, Producer, Writer, Vanessa Gildea (Head of the Department of Film + Media, National Film School, IADT) will host the discussion with Byrne.

Putting Irish Documentary on Global Screens

The global demand for content extends to all genres and the potential for Irish documentary, of all types, to find new audiences is boundless. The question is how do Irish documentary makers access this growing demand for content, for both funding and distribution, while still making distinctively Irish stories for global audiences. The funding landscape is in flux, for cinema and TV releases, as funding agencies and public service media grapple with the changing marketplace.


Speakers for the Screen Producers Ireland-supported event include Trevor Birney (Producer, Fine Point Films), Samantha Corr, (Producer, Venom Films) and Nuala Cunningham (Producer, New Decade), and chaired by Anthony Muldoon, Policy & Communications Manager, Screen Producers Ireland.
