FÍS – Film in School

FÍS is a highly successful film project for primary schools that explores film and animation as a medium of expression in relation to the arts, and introduces children to aspects of the filmmaking process. The FÍS Film Project was originally set up as a pilot project in 28 schools by the Institute of Art Design and Technology in Dun Laoghaire but was subsequently rolled out to all schools nationwide in 2000 with the support of the Department of Education and with the then NCTE (now PDST Technology in Education) as a key partner.

The project has been successful in helping children to develop essential skills in moving-image literacy, communication and teamwork. Teachers have reported that the children develop additional skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, investigation and analysis. Both teachers and children find the experience enriching and rewarding.
