Lucky Dozen with Ciaran Creagh

12th April 2017 by Maura McHugh

WGI member and writer/director Ciaran Creagh will give a ‘Lucky Dozen’ talk to Guild members about how he got his short and feature films into production.

Tackling notoriously ‘difficult’ subject matter from homelessness (in the multi award-winning Parked, starring Colm Meaney), the after-effects of clerical child abuse (The Note with Aidan Gillen) to more recently, depression and suicide (in In View which yielded an IFTA nomination for Caoilfhionn Dunne), Ciaran’s films have won numerous industry awards and critical acclaim.

Ciaran will discuss the creative, practical, and financial challenges he faced and how he overcame them in the latest ‘Lucky Dozen’ talk at 7pm on Thursday, 27 April at the Guild’s office; 3rd Floor, Arthouse, Curved Street, Dublin 2.

Paid-up Guild members who’d like to attend should email info@script.ie with ‘Lucky Dozen’ in the subject line by or before 24 April.

Remember, only the first twelve members get a spot.

Book your seat while you can!
