Irish Film and TV has, until recently, been dominated by male storylines and father-son narratives. As producers, broadcasters and distributers recognise the power of female-driven stories, there is a growing appetite for narratives that relate to female lived experiences, conflicts, challenges and wounds. This  course is for anyone curious about diverse/female characterisations and ways in which lived experiences can be dramatised to their potential into a credible narrative fictional screenplay. Please come equipped with ideas, storylines or characters to work on during this one-day development course. 

Oonagh Kearney has written and directed nine award-winning short films and one full-length documentary. In 2017, she was selected for the BBC Writers Room and made her TV debut as writer-director of RTE Storyland pilot On The Hemline. Funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, Oonagh's latest film, Five Letters To The Stranger Who Will Dissect My Brain, premiered at the 2018 Cork International Film Festival. Currently, Oonagh is developing Hemline as a TV series with producer Barbara Healy and writing her first narrative feature film Snow On Beara with the support of Screen Ireland.
