Regional Film Manager, Paul C. Ryan said: “We are thrilled that Simon will be joining us for what promises to be a really useful workshop for anyone aspiring to develop a career as a full-time editor in Ireland. Simon is one of our most talented editors and a great champion for film students in the region.
