Attendants will be given scenes to study beforehand and then material will be recorded and reviewed on the day itself. The benefit of local people considering a career in acting will be immense. Maureen will also get a feel for the huge level of talent in the county and consider these actors for future roles. There are a number of Acting Groups in Donegal & this will allow them to learn & be seen by one of Ireland's greatest industry experts.The project will be delivered by the team at Disappear Here Media who have successfully run the Ballyliffin Film Festival for the last 2 years.
