      NEWS: LAST CHANCE TO APPLY FOR FILMBASE MSc

      Last Chance to Apply for Filmbase Masters Courses in Feature Film and Creative Documentary Production

      Filmbase is currently accepting final applications for its Masters courses in Digital Feature Film and Creative Documentary Production starting in September. The course, run in association with Staffordshire University, is industry-facing and aims to assist filmmakers in developing their skills in the area of feature length film and documentary production.

       

      The course is currently entering its third year and is building on the success of the feature films created to-date on the programme. How To Be Happy, starring Brian Gleeson and Gemma-Leah Devereux, recently received its World Premiere with two sell out screenings at the Galway Film Fleadh.  Keys To The City, starring Rory Keenan, Conor Mullen, Una Kavanagh, David Murray and Natalia Kostrzewa, premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh in 2012 and has since screened at numerous festivals worldwide and will soon be available for digital download worldwide.    

       

      The course's intensive film production module allows students the opportunity to develop the essential skills necessary for future roles in the film industry while working in a highly practical film-making environment resulting in a full-length feature film. Students will also forge links with established filmmakers, rental companies and post production facilities through the film production process. Optional modules will also take place throughout the year in London and in Berlin during the European Film Market.

       

      Filmbase should receive expressions of interest from prospective students by September 5th for enrollment in 2013. Filmmakers interested in applying for the course can find more details on www.filmmasters.ie.
