    Two Mothers Podcast: Anna Rodgers and Zlata Filipovic Discuss Netflix Fund

    Two Mothers Podcast: Anna Rodgers and Zlata Filipovic Discuss Netflix Fund

    This February Netflix, supported by WFT Ireland and Screen Ireland, hosted an exclusive screening of five short films produced via The Netflix Documentary Talent Fund. The event took place at The Stella Cinema Rathmines and featured a Q&A with WFT members and filmmakers Anna Rodgers and Zlata Filipovic, whose emotional documentary Two Mothers was a recipient of the scheme.

    Two Mothers is an incredibly emotional story about maternal struggles, the impact of war, as well as how friendship can transcend borders.

    The fund was created in 2020 to break down barriers of access for emerging filmmakers. The initiative provides filmmakers with a foundation of knowledge as well as hands on training in all aspects of the industry to allow them to grow their careers.

    WIFT at Berlinale: Between Escapism, Activism and Documentation – Filmmaking in Trembling Times

    WIFT at Berlinale: Between Escapism, Activism and Documentation – Filmmaking in Trembling Times

    This February at Berlinale, our sister chapter WIFT Germany held a powerful series of talks titled "Between Escapism, Activism and Documentation – Filmmaking in Trembling Times". These examined the world today, where there seem to be new crises emerging daily – war, climate change, flight and displacement, and the resurgence of the far-right. All too often, women are the ones who suffer the most.

    In this podcast, WFT Ireland Member Gemma Creagh speaks with WIFT Germany Board Member and actor Mara Luka who talks about their vast chapter, the film industry in Germany, and WIFT's close ties to the Berlinale Festival.

    Then in a live recording from the event, outgoing Berlinale Executive Director Mariëtte Rissenbeek talks about WIFT's relationship to the festival while Producer Zhang Fan from Bridging the Dragon discusses the film landscape in China.

    This recording and podcast was made possible with the support of Coimisiún na Meán, WIFT Germany and Berlinale.

    Keep an eye out for part two, where we'll hear from our chair and WFT International President Dr Susan Liddy, from Ukrainian Filmmaker Julia Sinkevych and about an important study about Gender-Based Violence on German Television.

    Cannes Conversation Series Podcast: Focus on Sustainability

    Cannes Conversation Series Podcast: Focus on Sustainability

    In the fourth installment of our Cannes Conversation Series, we look at the importance of sustainability. The future of the screen industry depends on consciously changing how we approach filming as well as telling stories that look at the world in a new way. At the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, Gemma Creagh caught up with Ecoprod's Alissa Aubenque, a producer and Green Film Production Expert about changes in production that can be made that make a real difference.

    Following this, in a conversation that was recorded last week, filmmaker and WFT member Maeve Stone walks with producer and activist Helene Granqvist about the ins and outs of developing sustainable narratives and the intersectionality of activism and art.

    In the third of our Cannes Conversation Series, we look at working on long-form projects from a different viewpoint.

Could this be a new way of developing your next film?
