The National Film School (NFS) at IADT launched in November 2003 is a professional centre of excellence that both reflects and influences practice in the film, animation, broadcasting and digital media industries by providing creative, technical and academic education at an international standard. This status is based on: the consistently high achievements of its student productions in both professional competitions and festivals, at home and abroad; the careers of its graduates in the entertainment and media industries; the very high standard of applied film education that has been provided in Dún Laoghaire for almost 30 years. IADT’s full-time and part-time staff possess considerable industry experience and a high proportion continue to work as practitioners.
The National Film School has a range of practical full-time courses all of which are honours undergraduate programmes in Animation, Film & TV Production, Modelmaking, Design & Special Effects, Design for Stage & Screen (Production Design, Costume Design and Make-up Design). In addition postgraduate MA programmes in Screenwriting and Broadcast Production (Radio & Television) are also available.
