Mentorship and the Importance of Building Community for Creative Screen Producers

SPI Event
28 February 2020

What is the role of a mentor, and how can mentorship support the creative development of screen producers at every stage of their career? What might producers be looking for in a mentor/mentee relationship in a more formal setting? 

Our panel of festival producers will share their experience with mentorship, discuss opportunities to formalise the process and investigate how to build community through mentorship in a sustainable way in this discussion led by emerging producer Lara Hickey. Q&A to follow.

Presented and curated in association with Screen Producers Ireland.

Moderator: Lara Hickey

Panel: Alan Maher (Rialto), Clare McCabe (Break Us, Rose Plays Julie), Nicky Gogan (New York Our Time)
