27th June 2017 by Maura McHugh

Organised by the Equality Action Committee (EAC) of the Writers Guild of Ireland, the Screen Directors Guild of Ireland (SDGI), and Women in Film and Television Ireland (WFT.I), this panel discussion will take place during the Galway Film Fleadh, at 3 pm on Saturday, 15 July in the Galway Rowing Club.

The panel will be moderated by Mary Kate O Flanagan, and will include Emer Reynolds (The Farthest), Marian Quinn (Board Member Irish Film Board), Michael O’Keeffe (CEO Broadcasting Authority of Ireland) and industry representatives to debate what has been happening with gender equality.

Where we are and where we’re going–and more importantly–what initiatives can we expect to see over the coming year?

Get informed, motivated and inspired! See you there!

Join us for a networking drinks reception after the panel at 4.30pm – first drink is free for members, but all are welcome.

The panellists will be:

  • Kevin Brew (RTÉ Radio – Drama Department)
