Future of Film: Discovery Winners in Conversation

The Future of Film: Discovery Winners in Conversation takes place on Wednesday, 1st July, 2020 from 7:00pm to 8.00pm. This year, an esteemed jury of industry professionals evaluated a shortlist of the brightest stars in the Irish film industry. From this pool of incredible talent, these four individuals were selected as the 2020 Aer Lingus Discovery Winners:


  • Editor & Director Cara Holmes
  • Director Claire Byrne
  • Director Paddy Slattery
  • Actor Dónall Ó Héalaí

All four of these filmmakers had films screened in our 2020 festival and are currently working on the release of those works. New projects, however, have been on hold since lockdown began. Festival Director Gráinne Humphreys has spent the past three months talking to filmmakers about how to cope with the disruption caused by Covid 19 – how to keep morale up, how to keep networks and contacts fresh, what film festivals to target, and how to be prepared for when the international film world restarts.
