St. Colman’s NS, Ballymote, Co. Mayo scoop the top prize, the Aileen MacKeogh Award for Outstanding Achievement in Film-making, at the 2013 FIS Film Festival with their film “School Days Over”.
FÍS is a successful film project currently thriving in primary schools across Ireland. The initiative encourages children to explore the medium of film in the primary classroom developing essential skills in moving-image literacy, communication, teamwork, visual arts and even numeracy … oh yes, and it’s also lots of fun!
I loved making our film. Everyone in the class had a job or a role and we worked really well together. It was the best thing ever!
The children had a great experience and their parents have never been as proud of them as they were today.
