After more than three decades in business, Filmbase is going into liquidation
No doubt a blow to the arts and particularly FILM in Ireland.FILMBASE, THE DUBLIN organisation which supports filmmakers in Ireland, has announced it will close after 32 years in business and go into voluntary liquidation.
The Temple Bar-based members-led organisation was founded in 1986 and offers courses, exhibition space, equipment on loan to filmmakers and access to film funding.
It is also responsible for the website Film Ireland, which reviews and discusses work by Irish filmmakers. It is due to close down as a result of accumulated debts.
