The Screenwriting Panel, shot at Institute of Art, Design & Technology as part of Dublin International Film Festival 2024, celebrates the filmmakers whose work is shown at the event. The panel discussion is an opportunity for writers of all levels to learn more about contemporary Irish screenwriting, where the inspiration comes from, how ideas develop, and how to get to a finished piece.

Host: Vanessa Gildea, Head of the Department of Film + Media & The National Film School, Institute of Art, Design & Technology.
