FÍS will return from January 25th – 28th with Amazon Studios’ Director of European Original Series, Georgia Brown revealed as the first keynote speaker for Ireland’s only TV conference.

Free registration for the event is now open, with FÍS offering designed to support and connect the Irish television community in light of what has been a very challenging time. The summit will still deliver the key, flagship moments that have become a highlight on the industry calendar, including an array of speakers, case studies, and panel sessions focusing on the theme of Knowing Your Audience.

Speaking for the first time directly to Irish content creators, FÍS will welcome Amazon Studios’ Georgia Brown. Georgia is the Director of European Amazon Original Series for Amazon Studios where she oversees the development and production of scripted and non-scripted Amazon Originals in Europe, including shows like The Grand Tour, All or Nothing: Manchester City, James May: Our Man in Japan, Celebrity Hunted Italy, Love Island France; All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur, El Cid, and Voltaire Mixte.

Our industry is based on creative innovation and so too is the Fís TV Summit,” said Fís Programmer, Jade Murphy. “We are excited to present a host of innovative webinars to Irish content creators on the theme of Knowing Your Audience and announce Amazon’s Georgia Brown as the first speaker of our exciting line-up. Television’s vital role in our lives has never been so present, valued, and cherished, and so the team will be doing everything we can in 2021 to keep the discussion flowing, talent supported and diversity encouraged. I would like to thank our partners, sponsors, and advisory committee for their continued support, advice, and guidance”.

John Yorke & Jed Mercurio In Conversation, Presented by MediaXchange is the second event of the dynamic Fís line-up to be announced. Having created some of the world’s biggest dramas, the pair has an extensive working relationship formed over many years and will discuss for the first time together with their careers, collaborations together and give their insights into what it takes to create shows that have the potential to delight and enthrall an audience.

With the rise of Over-the-Top Subscription Video-on-Demand (OTT SVOD) services, together with the majority of broadcast and cable networks offering an unheard of plethora of viewing options, how the average person consumes TV content has changed immensely and will continue to do so. So who are our audiences and how do we meet their expectations when developing our stories for the screen?


Further details on the Fís schedule will be announced in due course as will details of participants and speakers. Registration for Fís is now open. Tickets for the virtual Summit are free but will be limited so be sure to register early Here.
