The Screenwriting for Film and Television program at Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technolog is the longest running and was the first MA of its kind in the country. It employs the very best screenwriting tutors in Ireland and each year we offer our students advice and input from the very best writers/producers and directors who visit our programme as panelists and guest speakers.
Each year we invite established directors to workshop scene’s from our Master Student’s screenplays with a group of actors – in previous years Lenny Abrahamson, Neil Jordan, Juanita Wilson, Jim Sheridan, Paddy Breathnach, Kirsten Sheridan, Ed Guiney, Neasa Hardiman and many other accomplished directors have dedicated their time and energy to these workshops.
Careers may be found in the film/television industry as screenwriters, script editors and/or in teaching.
