Welcome to 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!

The FÍS methodology empowers teachers and children to explore the medium of film and digital media in the primary curriculum.  FÍS helps develop many different areas of the primary curriculum and in particular develops active learning, creative thinking, language, imagination, collaborative learning and problem solving skills as well as giving children hands-on experience of using creative technology as part of the film making process.

FÍS Film Project is a collaborative partnership between the Institute of Art, Design & Technology (IADT) and the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST)

15th Annual FÍS Film Awards Ceremony

The Helix

Wednesday 13 November 2019

12:30 – 14:30

At FÍS, we are all about making films, be it live action or animation.  We just love to see and hear that Irish primary schools engage in the film-making process.  You may have recently completed a CPD course in Digital Storytelling (film or animation) in your local Education Centre provided by our partners, the Professional Development Services for Teachers (PDST Tech in Ed Dept.), or completed one of their online CPD courses or perhaps you just want to jump straight in.  Either way you will find the teacher resources available here will support you to introduce filmmaking into your classroom.

As part of their tour in IADT, students from St. Gerard’s Junior School, the 2018 Fís Film of the year award winners, got a preview of these amazing sea creature models. They are now on show at the Tide is Turning Exhibition at @dlrLexicon which opened yesterday. The children were very impressed with the sculptures, created by @myIADT 3D & Model-Making students, and were full of inspiration as they left!
