In an age where instability and geo-political turmoil is ever-present, it is incumbent on our industry to create and foster ties with our international colleagues, and support each-other in our individual work as documentary festivals.
Considering this, Docs Ireland has invited a number of our European counterparts to this year’s festival, to create connections, strengthen partnerships and cultivate a further sense of solidarity in our documentary community.
Join these representatives from a number of prestigious festivals to learn more about their festivals' individual ethos and curatorial practices, as well as creative collaborations, and how they work with filmmakers in supporting and promoting their work and careers.
