New President for WIFTI

Women In Film and Television International (WIFTI) has named Ireland’s Susan Liddy as its president, taking over from Swedish producer Helene Granqvist, who has held the role since 2018.

At present, Liddy is chair of Women in Film and Television Ireland – a position she has held since 2018. She also serves on the boards of the Irish Film Institute, the Writers Guild of Ireland and Raising Films Ireland, and lectures at the University of Limerick. She is the founder and director of Catalyst International Film Festival, Limerick – a festival that prioritises films from and about underrepresented groups.

Liddy and Granqvist will work together as co-directors for the coming months, until Liddy assumes the helm in August 2023.

WIFT NZ's Patricia Watson and WIFT Vancouver's Susan Brinton are the WIFTI vice presidents.
