Warner Bros. Creative Talent today announced its support of the Audi Dublin International Film Festival Costume Designer’s Masterclass with Oscar-winner Alexandra Byrne. Taking place at The Hugh Lane Gallery on Saturday 18th February from 1pm, the event will be hosted by fellow Costume Designer and 2016 Oscar-nominee for Florence Foster Jenkins, Consolata Boyle.
The masterclass is a further example of Warner Bros.’ continued support for industry professionals and trainees through Warner Bros. Creative Talent. This follows the recently announced scholarship for Miriam Devitt, an MA Screenwriting student at Dublin’s Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT).
Grainne Humphreys, Festival Director of the Audi Dublin International Film Festival, said:
It is a great pleasure to welcome the outstanding talent that is Alexandra Byrne to this year’s festival to share her wealth of industry experience as one of the leading practitioners in her field. I am thrilled to welcome her to Ireland for the festival and I am sure that the masterclass will no doubt be one of the highlights of this year’s festival.
From the upcoming Jungle Book to Hamlet, 300: Rise of an Empire, Elizabeth, Thor and Guardians Of The Galaxy, Alexandra Byrne boasts an impressively diverse career as one of the leading experts in her field. After three previous Oscar nominations (Hamlet, Elizabeth and Finding Neverland), Byrne took home the Academy Award in 2007 for her work on Elizabeth: The Golden Age, to add to her BAFTA for Persuasion.
