On December 8th, in The Sugar Club, Snackbox Films will present the winter version of its The Snackbox Sessions, a networking event for filmmakers by filmmakers about the business of filmmaking.

This winter session shines a spotlight on an innovative group of independent filmmakers Snackbox calls Ireland’s Movie Mavericks, which includes Terry McMahon writer/director of Patrick’s Day, Alex Fegan producer/director of The Irish Pub, Mark O’Connor writer/director of Stalker, and Nicky Gogan the director and founder of the Darklight Festival. It’s an informal evening of conversation and audience led questions which offers a chance for filmmakers to learn from the panel’s experiences and to share their own.

Snackbox Films is Ireland’s newest independent film and television production company, having been established this year by writer/producers Garry Walsh and Colm Nicell alongside producer/director Alex Fegan.

Snackbox co-founder Garry Walsh says “This is a fantastic opportunity for the next generation of Irish filmmakers to learn from and network with a new wave of talented writers, producers and directors whose innovation, ambition and determination has led them to pursue alternative and sometimes unconventional routes in order to get their films on to the big and small screen.”

So, whether you’re a film student wanting to learn more about the industry, a writer, producer or director trying to get your film made, a film buff with a love of all things celluloid or an industry pro with a desire to meet new and emerging talent in the Irish film industry, this event is for you.

The event takes place on Monday 8th of December, in The Sugar Club, 8 Lower Leeson Street, Dublin 2, from 19:30 – 21:30 (Doors open 19:00). Tickets €10 available from EventBrite.

Host on the night is Alison Crinion of Lovemovies.ie with proceeds going to The Irish Cinema Trade Benevolent Fund. More details on Snackbox Films can be found on their website, Facebook, and Twitter.
