The Irish cinema experience: What does the future hold?

A theatre audience watch a screen behind the camera

Ireland is one of the most unique territories in the world when it comes to cinemas with a very high percentage of indigenous ownership of the exhibition sector and Irish film fans making more cinema visits per capita than any other country in Europe. The panel will discuss their ongoing plans to develop their audiences and build confidence in cinema goers to generate a recovery for the theatrical experience; what programming will fill schedules, working with filmmakers and the distribution sector; and what they see as their role into the future.

Presented by the Galway Film Fair and the WRAP Fund, with the support of Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland and Screen Skills Ireland in association with Screen Producers Ireland.
