Mindshift at IWC

8th November 2016 by Maura McHugh

The Writers Guild of Ireland, in association with the Irish Writers Centre, is delighted to present Mindshift: Redressing Gender Equality in Writing for Film.

Taking place from 10.30am – 4.00pm on 22 November 2017 at the Irish Writers Centre in Dublin.

As if breaking into screenwriting isn’t enough of a challenge, gender inequality is commonplace in the film industry. This professional development day, supported by Words Ireland, is aimed primarily at women writers who are interested in writing for film or television, or in having their existing work adapted for the screen.

Experts will cover:

  • writing for film and TV in Ireland
  • the under-representation of women in writing and directing film
  • the Irish Film Board’s new policy initiative on gender
  • adaptation: the creative process
  • adaptation: the contract process

Line-up includes:
David Kavanagh (CEO, WGI), screenwriters Lauren Mackenzie and Juanita Wilson; writer/director Marian Quinn, and writer/academic Dr. Susan Liddy, as well as London based agent Julian Friedmann.

Cost: €15 / €10 (IWC Members) | Bookings via Eventbrite

Please note: this event is free for members of the WGI but tickets must be pre-booked via Eventbrite.
