What is the FíS Film Project?

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!”

Preview of this years Shortlisted Films:

The FÍS film project is an initiative of the Department of Education and Skills, managed by PDST Technology in Education and the Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT). The annual event sees schools from all over Ireland creating short films from animations, documentaries to educational dramas.

FÍS gives children the opportunity to use digital technologies to support their learning across a range of curricular areas including literacy development and assessment. It also provides the opportunity to develop social skills such as working together and respecting the abilities and opinions of their peers. This learning process culminates in a high quality short film that schools can be proud of. And a lucky few will even leave the Helix with a much coveted FÍS award
