Digital Biscuit returns for more hobnobbing

Film and technology networking event will be held in Dublin in March

"Film and technology forum" Digital Biscuit will be held in Dublin for the fourth time on March 2nd-4th next, the organisers, Screen Directors Guild of Ireland, have confirmed.

The guild is in the process of selecting speakers from the world of film and technology and has put out an open call to anyone in the sector who wants to “share stories about unlikely influences, cross-discipline collaborations and inspiring new projects” that highlight the use of technology in the realisation of a creative vision.

“With the Web Summit’s recent announcement of its move, Digital Biscuit is well placed to attract an international audience to Dublin, contribute to building the Irish film industry and Ireland’s smart economy and to help maintain Ireland’s position as a leader in the tech and film industry globally,” said founder Birch Hamilton.

The networking event attracted 4,000 people last year, when speakers included The Sopranos creator David Chase, film director Michel Gondry and Red Rock showrunner Peter McKenna.
