Writer/Director David Keating will give a detailed, interactive workshop on pitching, exploring questions such as.. What are effective ways to talk about the films we passionately want to make? What kind of language can we use? What are the most important elements to a strong pitch? How long should it be?

This course is aimed at writers, directors and producers who wish to examine and enhance their pitching skills. Please apply online. The deadline for applications is Thursday 24th September. For further details, contact Helen McMahon in Screen Training Ireland at or Rossa Mullin at Film In Cork at
