Filmbase is a not-for-profit resource centre for filmmakers. Their building on Curved Street, in the heart of Dublin’s Temple Bar, is a public space where filmmakers can network, hire filmmaking equipment, take training courses and receive support and information about working within the Irish film industry.

Filmbase was at the centre of the pre-production of ‘Watching & Waiting ‘ in 2008, providing casting and rehearsal space as well as equipment and insurance for the shoot. The partnership through the 72 project has brought Staffordshire University closer to Filmbase, and in 2011, an MSc in Digital Feature Film Production was launched in collaboration between the two partners.
