Ardán is excited to have Kerry Ehrin as our headline speaker for FÍS TV Summit 2024! The first writer with whom Apple signed an overall deal; multi-award-winning writer, producer, and showrunner, Ehrin is best known for her work on The Morning Show, Bates Motel, and Friday Night Lights.

The other subject of this year’s international focus will be Wales. The audiovisual media sector – film, television and gaming – has become a key part of the Welsh economy, with Cardiff demonstrating the potential for creative clusters in the sector. The Welsh delegation will take part in a series of panels focused on Wales’ vibrant screen industry and the value it provides as an audiovisual cluster.

The Summit will also feature Case Studies on Obituary and The Doll Factory, a Conversation on AI in the TV industry, Production Opportunities & Challenges in 2024, and the annual Pitching Competition where we’ll see six finalists pitch their next great TV idea. Read about the six finalists here. The winner will be announced at the evening Networking Evening at the MacNeill’s Pub at the Hardiman Hotel.
