Film & TV Students Continue With Important Links To Industry

01 December 2020

Grainne Humphreys, Festival Director of the Dublin International Film Festival, joined our Film & TV students in remote format recently to explain the importance of film festivals to filmmakers, along with the plans for DIFF 2021.



DKIT is one of the colleges that has been involved with DIFF's new First Frame Initiative since the summer of 2019, which is part of the festival's desire to strengthen ties with film courses across the country.  Last February, our students and lecturers attended the DIFF 2020 First Frame event, where selected films from both our students and students across the country were screened, alongside a filmmaking masterclass and awards event.  The staff & students on the BA (Hons) in Film & Television Production look forward to working with DIFF again this year.

In addition, David Collins, Managing Director of Samson Films in Dublin, who have produced feature films such as Grabbers and Once, has begun remote mentoring sessions with our 3rd year Film & TV students as part of their Project module where they work in groups to create an industry standard short fiction film.  This is an amazing opportunity for students to work with an experienced industry professional.
