Growing up in Northern Ireland, the Troubles were part of Joan Burney’s world. Having sparked a career at the BBC in London, Joan wondered how she could give back, how she could bring people from opposite sides together. Her work with Cinemagic has had an international impact. We’ll talk about the power of film to bring people together and the value of being braver sooner. 

We talk about Cinemagic (obviously) BAFTA, The Good Friday Agreement, The Troubles, Watts, California, and Made in Her Image. Just a few stars who are involved with Cinemagic include Julian Fellowes, Colin Farrell, Liam Neeson, Pierce Brosnan, and Saoirse Ronan. 

As always, more information on PageCraft script consulting services, online workshops and more is here.
