As Programme Manager of the 2007 Dublin International Film Festival, Glenn managed the production of the Festival Brochure, along with securing and co-ordinating films from all over the world. The late Michael Dwyer, former Director of the Dublin International Film Festival and Film Correspondent of The Irish Times, described Glenn as “admirably organised and unflappable”.
