The 10th annual FÍS Film Festival has taken place at the Helix, DCU.

 

The Minister of Education and Science, Jan O'Sullivan TD, joined around 1000 primary schoolchildren from all over the country to celebrate the 10th National FÍS Film Festival at the Helix, DCU, on Tuesday 4th November. The Minister presented the overall Aileen McKeogh Award to Behy National School, Ballina, Co. Mayo for their film "The Battle Of Ardnaree" and to Carrigaline Educate Together National School, Carrigaline, Co. Cork for their film "Power Out". Such was the high standard this year that it was decided for the first time to split the award between two schools.
