Helen Wells


helen-wells-2013Helen worked for 17 years as Head of Private Client administration at London-based portfolio management company, Global Asset Management.  Helen and her family moved to Schull in 2005 and all have embraced beautiful West Cork.

Helen volunteered as Festival Coordinator for the ‘Art in Schull Festival’ in 2007 and 2008 and was the Event Manager for the inaugral ‘Belling West Cork Artisan Food Awards‘ in 2011.

Born to organise, she relished the challenge of helping to set up a Film Festival in Schull with the other members of the Steering Committee in 2009 and has been part of the committee ever since.  Helen was Co-Chair alongside Maurice from 2010 and was Chairman for the 2014 & 2015 festivals, before deciding to step down and hand over the mantle to Hilary for 2016.

Helen coordinates all the Submission entries received into the festival, programmes the entries and coordinates the judging process.  She organises all the many fabulous volunteers and is the overall Adminisrator for the festival – she just loves the paperwork!

During the festival you will find her in the Box Office, with Pauline and Hilary, chained to her desk!  However, this year she is determined to escape and see some events…!
