The international summit is aimed at producers and content creators from throughout Ireland and it will take place in the Galway Bay Hotel in Salthill. The main focus of the summit is the question: “In the age of Video on Demand, with new ways of consuming content and ever-tightening budgets, is TV at a crossroads?” The event will also have a special strand dedicated to discussing programming for young people. An interview with special guest Graham Linehan (Father Ted, The IT Crowd, Black Books), a panel with the Director Generals of the main broadcasters in Ireland and another with funders from the world of Video on Demand are some of the highlights of the FÍS TV Summit.
