An Cailin Ciúin and Hidden Asset case studies among line-up for this year's Fleadh Forum
27 Jun 2022 : News Desk
Hidden Assets and An Cailin Ciúin.
A line-up of case studies, roundtable discussions and industry talks for filmmakers and industry professionals to explore and exchange ideas, will be at the centre of this year’s Film Forum at the 34th Galway Film Fleadh.

Joined by a host of industry experts, Screen Ireland have curated four separate panels covering TV drama co-production, using hit series Hidden Assets as a case study; distribution and the success of recent Irish cinema release, An Cailín Ciúin; audience development and harnessing new technology to find them; and the introduction of the National Talent Academy network, encompassing National Talent Academies for Film and Television, Animation and three Crew Hubs nationwide.

Fleadh Forum – Full Schedule:

TV Drama & International Co-Production Case Study: Hidden Assets

11.00 – 12.00

Much TV drama these days is being financed like a feature film. It involves producer led co-production structures and multiple financing partners – even Eurimages is now contemplating a fund for TV drama. We look closely at how such a TV drama was financed from multiple sources and structured as a co-production with the producer at the centre.

Panelists: Peter McKenna (Screenwriter, Hidden Assets), Andrew Byrne (Screen Ireland), Siobhán Bourke (Saffron Pictures)

Moderator: Sheila de Courcy

National Talent Academy Network: Introducing the Academies and Crew Hubs

12.00 – 13.00

In 2020, Screen Ireland supported the establishment of the National Talent Academy network – 2 National Talent Academies for Film and Television, and Animation, and 3 crew hubs. The network was established to increase scale across skills development for the industry, as well as respond to the need for more crew training.

This session will be introduced by Gareth Lee (Skills Manager Screen Ireland) and Andrew Byrne (TV Manager Screen Ireland).

Panelists: Alan Duggan (National Talent Academy for Film and Television), Deirdre Barry (National Talent Academy for Animation), Jade Travers (Crew Hub East), Lorraine Higgins (Crew Hub West), Paul Ryan (Crew Hub South).

Moderator: Sheila de Courcy

Distribution Case Study: An Cailín Ciúin

14.00 – 14.45

As Irish language film An Cailín Ciúin passes over €700k at the UK and Ireland box office, we explore how Irish distributor Break Out Pictures brought the film to market.

Panelists: Robert Finn (Break Out Pictures), Nell Roddy (Break Out Pictures)

Moderator: Celine Haddad

Audiences: How do we know where they are?

14.45 – 15.30

We know audiences are there, but how much thought is given to the wants and needs of the audience. This panel discusses how can we explore the latest thinking in technology to inform us.

Speaker: Niels Alberg (Publikum)


The Fleadh Forum will take place in the Veranda Bar at the Galmont Hotel on Thursday, 7th July 2022. The event is RSVP only, and a waitlist will be established if the event is oversubscribed.
