The Oh Yeah Centre in Belfast will welcome Banbridge born film producer Sue Breen this weekend when she sits down for a conversation with journalist Fionola Meredith on Saturday June 9 at 2.30pm.
The event is part of ‘Women’s Work’ and admission is free.
The two women discuss how to make your way in the film and media worlds, what to say yes to, what to say no to, when to follow the rules and when to break them.
Susan Breen began her TV career in long-running drama, working as a Script Editor, then Producer, on various drama series for the BBC, ITV and Channel 4.
