“It is our ambition that STORYHOUSE will put Ireland on the map internationally as a centre of excellence for screenwriting and we hope that the sessions next week will inspire and empower a new and diverse generation of Irish based screenwriters to create, develop and produce their stories for a global audience.”

The interviews will be conducted by industry leaders such as Lenny Abrahamson (Room, Normal People) and Mark O’Halloran (Adam and Paul, Rialto, Viva), Sinéad Burke (Tilting the Lens), Frank Berry (Aisha) and Patrick Freyne (Irish Times journalist and author of OK, Let’s Do Your Stupid Idea).

They will join speakers previously announced, which include Academy Award© nominee TONY MCNAMARA (Poor Things, The Favourite, The Great), two of Britain’s most exciting new voices, MOLLY MANNING WALKER (How to Have Sex) and CHARLOTTE REGAN (Scrapper), as well as novelist and screenwriter DAVID NICHOLLS (One Day, Patrick Melrose) and writer-director ALI ABBASI (Holy Spider, Border).
