Tragic Loss to the Film Industry


WFT Ireland is saddened to hear about the passing of our member, director/producer Ciarín Scott. Her first film ‘John and the Magic Music Man’ (1976) won the Silver Medal at The New York Film & Television Festival and the Grand Prix at Besancon Film Festival. She made over 50 award-winning commercials and is remembered by the SDGI as “a unique voice and vibrant part of the Screen Directors Guild community”. Our chair Susan Liddy has spoken of Ciarín’s keen engagement at events supporting women in film. Our thoughts are with her family and loved ones.
