The Screen Directors’ Guild of Ireland (SDGI) will host its second Digital Biscuit event at the Science Gallery, Trinity College, Dublin from January 22nd to 24th 2014.
The inaugural Digital Biscuit in 2013 proved a success with 4,000 attendees from the film world and the public attending over the three day period.
“Digital Biscuit 2014 places creatives at its core while also serving as a digital expo for new technologies,” say the organisers.
“The aim is to make directors and people generally aware of the most up to date digital technologies in film making and indeed TV production,” says Ciaran Donnelly, chairman of SDGI and director of The Tudors and Vikings.

This year’s honorary guest director is Alan Taylor, who has clocked up credits on Mad Men, Game of Thrones, and most recently, Thor: The Dark World.
Directors, writers, photographers, producers, editors, directors of photography, students and members of the public can see demonstrations of new technologies in the KinoPlay Area.
