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
