About this Event
Do you have a blockbuster novel in the works? Or a compelling non-fiction book that would make a great documentary? Are you working on the next Normal People? At this event, hear directly from the industry professionals on how to get film makers to sit up and take notice.
Whether you’re a publisher or an author, your book could make a great film – but what are the key elements needed for any successful transition from page to screen? Hear from Ireland’s experts on what film makers look for in a pitch, what books have translated well to film, the trends and future of the Irish and global film industries, and what routes are open to publishers and authors to sell rights.
