Ireland has a rich history with film, from classics like Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon and Braveheart to modern flicks like P.S. I Love You and Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank. In recent years, it’s become a hub for television productions as well with Game of Thrones and Vikings being filmed on the island.
The film industry in Ireland has grown with the assistance of the Irish Film Board, becoming an international filmmakers destination, and also seeing a rise in Irish film-making talent. Venues like The Light House Cinema and the Irish Film Institute along with festivals like the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival are providing spaces for film to cultivate, putting Ireland firmly on the map in the world of film.
Film internships are available with pre and post production companies working on feature films, documentaries, corporate videos, and television series. Work could involve researching for submissions, set, prop, and cast sourcing, and assisting with camera work and post production edits.
The growing animation and gaming industry in Dublin is part of the creative, digital growth sector in Ireland. There are plenty of creative studios animating 2D and 3D content for children’s TV shows, films, online games, as well as Mobile and App technology.
