Writing in Irish

25th June 2007 by Maura McHugh

The Guild is organising a conference at the Galway Film Fleadh on the issue of writing for the screen in Irish.

With the arrival of BCI money, and the Irish language television fund in Northern Ireland, the volume of TV drama in Irish has increased, and two (admittedly very low budget) Irish feature films have been produced. What are the prospects for production in Irish, and will more money mean more production or bigger budgets? How should drama in a minority language be supported?

The meeting will include speakers from French-speaking Canada, and from Wales, and will take place the morning of Friday 13th July in the Radisson Hotel in Galway.
