Jannine Waddell, MBE, Chair of Women in Film and Television in Northern Ireland, says:

“Screen Queens was an idea I had for a while to raise the profile of leading women working in the creative industries in Northern Ireland. This session will be an entertaining and revealing forum, investigating gender, sex and equality. I am delighted that Bronagh, Anne, Clare, Laura and Marie-Louise have agreed to join us and share their opinions on topical issues affecting women working in TV and film.”
