Welcome to Film & Screen Media

Film and Screen Media at University College Cork is a vibrant community of lecturers, researchers and graduate students. Led by internationally recognised experts, and with a thriving visiting speakers and guest practitioners component, our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees explore the history of filmmaking through the study of films from around the world, from the birth of cinema to the age of the Internet.

The Fastnet Short Film Festival, in Schull, West Cork, continues to attract the cream of filmmakers from Ireland and beyond.
