Content without Borders - SPI at Belfast Doc Fest

SPI Event
13 June 2019

As part of the Belfast Doc Fest programme this year, SPI is hosting an event called:

Content without Borders - SPI Event at Belfast Doc Fest,
Thursday June 13th, 12pm, Europa Hotel

The island of Ireland offers advantages for documentary and factual producers who can receive commissions from Public Service and Commercial Broadcasters on both sides of the border. Stories about Irish experiences resonate with audiences who share a common heritage. However, does the current political landscape affect how these stories are being told, and how they are being commissioned?

At this panel, producers who create content for broadcasters on both sides of the border and commissioners who commission content will speak about their experiences, their expectations for the industry and what they see as the challenges ahead.
Date: Thursday, June 13th
Time: 12pm
Venue: Europa Hotel, Belfast

Moderator: Elaine Geraghty, SPI CEO
