We are delighted to support the Docs Ireland industry event, Spotlight on the Nordics, on Friday 21st June at 10am in Belfast Exposed gallery.

Docs Ireland will spotlight the documentary film industry of the Nordic region, and the infrastructures and mechanisms that keep it sustainable.

Through presentations, case studies and discussion with invited speakers (including broadcasters, film institutes and festivals), this event will give a fulsome insight into the ecosystem surrounding the documentary community in this territory.

Using the expertise of, and knowledge-sharing with, the contributors, the aim of the event is to foster and provide opportunities for Irish doc-makers to consider co-production with partners from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
