After the success of its inaugural edition in 2018, Cork Film Festival returns with the Focus: Filmmaker Forum. This round-table forum offers attending filmmakers an opportunity to take part in an informal networking event comprising a series of round-table sessions aimed at guiding participants through the entire process of making their short or feature film. Participants will partake in five 15-minute group sessions, which will take them through development, financing, production, festival strategy and distribution. Key Irish and international film industry players will take questions and give advice on their field of expertise, imparting attendees with guidance and knowledge to help efficiently produce and exploit their film.
Focus: Filmmaker Forum is presented in partnership with Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland.
The event will take place in advance of the Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland Focus Shorts 2019 World Premiere screening at the Everyman
