IRELAND’S PREMIERE DOCUMENTARY INDUSTRY DAY PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE IRISH FILM BOARD
As Cork Film Festival continues to expand its focus on high quality Irish and International Documentary Cinema, this new flagship event brings together Irish and international industry leaders to discuss the landscape in which projects are conceived of, developed and distributed. The packed day will address agenda-setting issues within the industry and explore the worlds of festival programming, the changing landscapes of commissioning and distribution, and explore unique productions.
