The X-Pollinator network has announced the 140 female, trans and non-binary filmmakers who will take part in the 2024 edition at TU Dublin, 23 - 25 February.
This group of new and diverse filmmakers includes screenwriters, directors and producers, many from other disciplines such as theatre, journalism, acting, crew members and executives. They will take part in a curated programme of talks, masterclasses, panel discussions, roundtables and networking events that will take place from 23 – 25 February at TUD, Grangegorman.
'We are delighted to welcome this new cohort of 140 filmmakers to the X-Pollinator network and we can’t wait to bring them all together under one roof for a jam packed weekend. We are honoured to also announce some of the incredible line up of exceptionally talented filmmakers who will join us for the weekend to share their process, experience and wisdom, all with the aim of sparking conversations, making connections and planting the seeds for future collaborations on screen.'
