About Cinema Studies in Dublin, Ireland
Students will attend their courses at the Irish National Film School in Dún Laoghaire, a beautiful coastal town on the outskirts of Dublin, and live with local families in home-stays. Weekly excursions will allow students to learn on location about the country’s rich film history and explore the sites where important historical events, and films about those events, took place. Students will also travel together for a long weekend to attend the annual Film Fleadh, Ireland’s largest Film Festival held in Galway.
- Ireland Onscreen: An introduction to the portrayals of Ireland and the Irish onscreen in contemporary cinema.
- Digital Dublin: An intensive hands-on digital filmmaking course held in and around Dún Laoghaire.
The two, 4-credit courses help satisfy Core C and Production B Requirements for UO Cinema Studies majors. All majors are welcome, and no course prerequisites are required.
