Storyhouse 2024
Storyhouse, a new annual festival of screenwriting which will be held in Dublin’s Light House Cinema next Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd March 2024 has added more speakers to its previously announced lineup of international speakers.

Additional speakers announced today for the inaugural Storyhouse include Sarah Phelps (A Very British Scandal, Dublin Murders), Nancy Harris (The Dry), Namsi Khan (True Detective, Humans), Mounia Aki (Costa Brava Lebanon), Emma Moran (Extraordinary), Baz Ashmawy (Faithless) and Stacey Gregg (Here Before).

The interviews will be conducted by industry leaders such as Lenny Abrahamson (Room, Normal People) and Mark O’Halloran (Adam and Paul, Rialto, Viva), Sinéad Burke (Tilting the Lens), Frank Berry (Aisha) and Patrick Freyne (Irish Times journalist and author of OK, Let's Do Your Stupid Idea).

They will join speakers previously announced, which include Academy Award nominee Tony McNamara (Poor Things, The Favourite, The Great), Molly Manning Walker (How to Have Sex) and Charlotte Regan (Scrapper), as well as novelist and screenwriter David Nicholls (One Day, Patrick Melrose) and writer-director Ali Abbasi (Holy Spider, Border).

Storyhouse is a not-for-profit initiative of Element Pictures (producers of Poor Things, The Favourite, Normal People and Room) and is spearheaded by co-CEO and founder Ed Guiney. It is a unique opportunity for new and established diverse writers and industry professionals to benefit from in-depth interviews, panels and case studies featuring some of the very best international creators of stories for the screen. Storyhouse is supported by Screen Ireland, Fremantle and Element Pictures and is produced in association with the Light House Cinema.

“We are thrilled to be returning from such a successful trip to the Academy Awards and to be announcing the final details of what is such an exciting new venture for us,” said Ed Guiney. “We are so fortunate to have such an exciting line-up of screenwriters joining us for the inaugural Storyhouse. It is our ambition that Storyhouse will put Ireland on the map internationally as a centre of excellence for screenwriting and we hope that the sessions next week will inspire and empower a new and diverse generation of Irish based screenwriters to create, develop and produce their stories for a global audience.”
