The Irish Film Board and the Galway Film Fleadh have announced details for the 2014 Real Deal Film Conference, which will consider the future of the industry.

This year’s theme - Where Do We Go From Here? - will focus on shifts in trends in audience content consumption, the rise of high-end TV drama and the popularity of event cinema, as well as the decline of DVD and pre-pay TV sales.

Speakers at the conference include Sundance Film Festival’s John Nein, the British Film Institute’s Alex Stolz and Magnolia Pictures’ Eamonn Bowles, who will collectively present the key address on the international film landscape.

A conversation about the new challenges and local landscape of distribution will also take place, featuring speakers from Wildcard Distribution, Element Distribution, movies@ and eOne.

The Real Deal Film Conference will take place on July 10 in Galway and will be moderated by Angus Finney.
