This Way Up 2017


This Way Up 2017


Keynote speakers have been announced for this year's This Way Up Conference. Jenny Sealey, CEO/Artistic Director of Graeae Theatre, and Moira Sinclair, CEO of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

The conference will be MC’d by James Mullighan, previous director of the 58th – 61st editions of the Cork Film Festival, and the 65th Edinburgh International Film Festival.

This year's main theme will be 'The Power of Culture' - in what feels like a period of increasingly dramatic and rapid change; in the film industry, in the country and across the world, where we’ve seen seismic shifts in politics, culture, society and business.

Other themes for the conference are technological change, ethics and resilience and places, spaces and global community.
