The Irish movie industry is set to be rocked by the launch of new film-making classes in Dublin.
Dublin Film School will be the first of its kind in the country, bringing together aspiring filmmakers, students and producers from across the creative and commercial worlds.
Dubliners are increasingly turning to the Dublin Film School to hone their craft and develop their skills.
It will offer a new and exciting pathway to the world of film making, which has seen its share of talent fall away.
Its an industry that is at the forefront of innovation, which is why we’re thrilled that the Dublin Education and Training Centre will be making its debut at the Dublin Festival of Ideas (DFI).
Dublin Festival of Innovation and Technology (DFIT) is the main event in the festival, and is set for a grand opening this weekend.
The festival, which was founded in 1875, brings together a variety of events including workshops and exhibitions, lectures, lectures and seminars, and the chance to network with the world’s leading creatives.
“It’s a great opportunity for our students and students of the industry to come together and work together,” said Professor Peter Byrne, head of the Dublin School of Film.
“Dublin is in a unique position to be able to host this event and be able draw a whole new audience to the industry.”
The Dublin Film and Television Institute (DFTI) has been organising the program for years and has a long history of supporting and promoting the industry.
Dubliner filmmakers can get a taste of the program at its upcoming film screening in Dublin on Thursday night.
Dublins new film school is part of the DFIT initiative to make the film-makers and producers in the industry more visible to the public.
“In terms of exposure, it’s quite amazing,” said director Alex Wren, who has worked in the film industry for more than 20 years.
“We have been able to have a very wide range of people who are involved in film production, so that we can really broaden our audience beyond Dublin.”
There’s a very important opportunity to make films that will resonate with the wider world, especially for the younger generation who are in the middle of a film career.
“The people that I’ve worked with, they are all incredibly passionate and passionate about making movies.”
The program will run from January 8-17.
