THE BEST OF THE NATIONAL FILM SCHOOL AT IADT
Monday October 9th, 2017
IADT’s Faculty of Film, Art & Creative Technologies boasts the largest selection of film-related courses in Ireland – spanning film and TV production, animation, and photography – and offers the only degree courses in the country in modelmaking for TV and media and design for stage and screen. An entire generation of award-winning Irish filmmakers owe their success to the skills IADT equipped them with as students.
Such alumni include cinematographer Robbie Ryan, who in 2016 won a British Independent Film Award for his cinematography on American Honey; Academy Award® nominated Kirsten Sheridan, director of August Rush and writer of In America; Aisling Walsh, director of Song for a Raggy Boy; Ciarán Donnelly, director of episodes of The Tudors, Camelot, and Vikings; Ciarán Foy, director of Citadel; James Mather, cinematographer on Lockout and Adam & Paul; and Peter Foott, who’s debut feature The Young Offenders has broken all box office records for a low-budget Irish film.
At the animation end of the spectrum, notable IADT graduates include Conor Finnegan, whose short Fear of Flying was nominated for Best Short and Best Animation at this year’s IFTAs; BAFTA-nominated animators Eamonn O’Neill and Jack O’Shea, who directed the incredibly successful A Coat Made Dark, which was selected for the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.
New programmes launched in 2017 include an exciting new Erasmus Mundus-funded Joint Master of Arts in Cinematography with partners in Estonia and Hungary and a new Master of Arts in Creative Production & Screen Finance.
Finally, IADT is the only Irish full member of CILECT, the International Association of Film and Television Schools.
