In this summer program, you will be immersed in cinema studies in Ireland. You will get to work both critically and creatively, taking courses on contemporary Irish cinema and digital filmmaking, as well as attending Ireland’s largest film festival held every year in Galway, the Film Fleadh. Weekly excursions and local outings in and around Dublin and the Irish countryside allow you 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.
You will attend courses in Dún Laoghaire, a community on the outskirts of Dublin, and live with Irish families in homestays. The program includes excursions, the film festival, many other group cultural and social activities, full on-site support, and a program orientation.
