Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology has announced the allocation of €12.8 million in funding from the European Commission to the FilmEU European University Alliance.

The FilmEU European University Alliance is a collaboration that transcends traditional boundaries. With the expansion from the original four to eight partners, each institution within FilmEU embraces this European Alliance for Film and Media Arts, fostering a higher education initiative within Europe’s cultural sector. 

IADT and the FilmEU Alliance aspire to shape the education landscape for screen arts not only in Europe but also beyond its borders. With the support of the European Commission, FilmEU aims to have a transformative impact from across their institutions to the cultural and creative sectors. Themes such as sustainability, inclusion, research mobility, innovation, and digital transformation will be at the forefront of their efforts.

Thanks to the backing of the European Commission, FilmEU ensures that Europe’s diverse narratives are celebrated and brought to life. Through FilmEU, IADT aims to push the boundaries of research, innovation, and enterprise, and harness the power of film and media arts. 

In response to the European Commission’s call for intensified cooperation, the FilmEU Alliance has grown to encompass eight Higher Education Institutions from across Europe:

  • IADT – Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology
  • Lusófona University (Portugal)
  • Luca School of Arts (Belgium)
  • Tallinn University (Estonia)
  • VŠMU – Academy of Performing Arts (Slovakia)
  • LMTA – The Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre
  • VIA University College (Denmark)
  • NATFA (National Academy for Theatre and Film Arts) – “Krustyo Sarafov” (Bulgaria)

This expanded alliance strengthens Europe’s position as a global leader in education, research, and innovation in the cultural and creative fields. 

In addition to the funding received from the European Commission, the FilmEU European University Alliance has secured support from Ireland's HEA (Higher Education Authority) and the Department Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science. This dual funding approach demonstrates the commitment of both European and national authorities to the development of arts and culture education and reinforces the importance of our collaborative efforts in shaping the cultural and creative industries in our country and across Europe. 

“The FilmEU Alliance is unlike any other initiative in the field of arts and media education,” said David Smith, President IADT. “With our expanded partnership, we are now poised to create a significant and lasting impact on the education landscape for screen arts in Ireland, Europe and beyond.”

“FilmEU represents a transformative opportunity for our institutions and the cultural and creative sectors,” added Rónán Ó’Muirthile, Head of Faculty of Film, Arts and Creative Technology. “This funding enables us to address important themes such as sustainability, inclusion, and digital transformation, while fostering research mobility and innovation.”

Barry Dignam, Head of European Projects said: “Film is an integral part of our cultural heritage, and through FilmEU, we ensure that Europe’s diverse narratives are celebrated and shared. This funding from the European Commission strengthens our ability to promote education, creativity, and entrepreneurship in the film and media arts.”
