Galway Film Centre’s seminar, Talking Documentary, takes place on January 15th and 16th in The Harbour Hotel in Galway city.
One of the panels which looks at Documenting the Arts, takes place on Saturday morning January 16th at 10.30am. Speakers on this panel are Richard Curson Smith and Paula Kehoe and it will be chaired by Dieter Auner.
Richard directed the feature ‘Stronger than Death‘, about poet Ted Hughes for BBC in 2015. Paula directed ‘Dearghdhúil: Anatomy of Passion’ about Máire Mhac an tSaoi, as part of the TG4/Arts Council Spanc! Scheme in 2015.
Both filmmakers use very strong creative imagery to capture the inner lives and characters of the poets, while still maintaining a strong narrative. The creative decisions they made will be explored on this panel.
Dieter Auner’s most recent film, Dreams of a Clown, is currently touring the festival circuit and he also directed the award-winning, Off the Beaten Track.

It will consist of 2 days of talks, panel discussions and screenings on many aspects of documentary and will be run in association with Creative Europe Galway, the BAI, TG4, the IFB and Screen Training Ireland.
