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!”

F.A.Q. Can we make a film without entering the FÍS Film Festival? Of course! see below

FíS Film Awards 2017 - Congratulations to St Aidens NS (Monasteraden) - “In Memoriam”
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
Closing Date for FíS Film Awards 2019  Friday June 28th 2019 – 5 pm.

F.A.Q. Can we make a film without entering the FÍS Film Festival? Of course! In fact, so much of the FÍS methodology is about the process rather than about the product. We encourage all teachers to start small initially and then, when both pupils and teacher are more confident, to consider going the final mile and producing a film. But it’s certainly not necessary to enter the Festival. Some fantastic learning takes place in schools without a film necessarily coming to fruition.
