Irish American Writers and Artists in partnership with New York Women in Film and Television invite you to a special event: 

Focus on Ireland and the Women Who Call the Shots.
Date March 4th at NYU – 6:30pm.
Great films, dramas and documentaries continue to be made in Ireland year after year, and the world is watching. Titles include: Vikings (2013), The TudorsAlbert Nobbs and The Summit (Sundance 2013). In collaboration with New York Women in Film and Television and in celebration of Women’s History Month, we shine a spotlight on women who produce and direct in Ireland and the US; and tell stories connected to Ireland. The producers discuss Ireland as a location destination, and review the wide range of incentives and tax credits available to co-productions.
