Join WFT Ireland online today to be able to attend!

WFT are thrilled to be hosting this event, in association with RTE, to navigate the world of TV formats. TV Formats have become a hugely popular way of producing for TV over the last number of years, with so many hit franchises now moving from territory to territory and being sold to networks all over the world.

But they can be a tricky to navigate. How do you secure a format deal? How are they optioned? What legal frameworks should you have in place? How do you translate and adapt them for your specific or domestic audience?

We’re asking some of the most experienced TV producers in Ireland to answer these golden questions and share their expertise and experience with our members. Whether you’re new to the idea or already working in TV this will be a practical and insightful event and we hope you can join us.

All members are very welcome to attend so please make sure your membership is up to date. (RTE staff are corporate members so all RTE staff are also very welcome to RSVP to attend).


Women in Film and Television International is a voluntary foundation promoting greater representation of women on screen and behind the camera, with a membership of over thirteen thousand professionals worldwide.
