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:  Study filmmaking in Irish history, Irish filmmakers, and the cinematic reflections of the key elements of Ireland's cultural history.
  • Digital Dublin:  An intensive hands-on digital filmmaking course held in and around Dún Laoghaire.
  • Ireland Screenwriting:  Students will work with a professional Irish screenwriter to adapt an Irish short story into a short film screenplay.

The program includes two classes:  Ireland Onscreen plus a choice of Digital Filmmaking or Screenwriting.  All majors are welcome, and no course prerequisites are required. The two, 4-credit courses help satisfy Core C and Production A/B Requirements for UO Cinema Studies majors.
