Irish American Writers and Artists in partnership with New York Women in Film and Television invite you to a special event:
Focus on Ireland and the Women Who Call the Shots.
Date March 4th at NYU – 6:30pm.
Great films, dramas and documentaries continue to be made in Ireland year after year, and the world is watching. Titles include: Vikings (2013), The Tudors, Albert Nobbs and The Summit (Sundance 2013). In collaboration with New York Women in Film and Television and in celebration of Women’s History Month, we shine a spotlight on women who produce and direct in Ireland and the US; and tell stories connected to Ireland. The producers discuss Ireland as a location destination, and review the wide range of incentives and tax credits available to co-productions.
Panelists include: Shelia Hockin, Executive Producer of Vikings (History Channel) and The Tudors (Showtime); Oscar nominated screenwriter, Naomi Sheridan (In America), currently adapting the novel Galway Bay for TV; Lelia Doolan, Producer/ Director (Bernadette: Notes on a Political Journey) and former Irish Film Board Chairperson; and Hilary Kehoe, major production roles in Ireland (Samson Films) and the US (Blue Bloods and Michael J Fox).
