Dublin College To Get New Film School

Work is expected to begin this summer on a new national film school in Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT) near Dublin.
The new 1,315sq/m film school will accommodate 385 students and is expected to take a year to complete the project.
The Irish Minster for Education and Science, Batt O'Keeffe, has today sent the project out to tender.
The Minister said: "The new film school will have a dedicated industry-standard television and film studio while the existing studio can then be refurbished for use as a bluescreen and digital 'black box' facility.
"The radio base is in a portacabin while the radio newsroom is in a concrete shed with only high-level windows."
He continued: "Clearly, this is unsuitable so the new film school will consolidate media-related disciplines in modern state-of-the-art facilities."
Separately, work is expected to start at the end of this year on a 4,200sq/m digital media teaching building for 500 IADT students.
The project is in the first bundle of the Government’s public private partnership plan for third-level institutions.
