Attention Teachers & Friends of FÍS
With great reluctance we wish to announce that, due to the on-going school closure & COVID-19 restrictions, the FÍS (Film in Schools) competition and associated annual awards ceremony will not go ahead this year.
Please note that the project will continue and our online resources are available to you here. Please be assured that we will continue to provide support to teachers throughout 2020/2021.
The FÍS project partners, IADT & PDST TiE, wish to thank you for your ongoing support and we look forward to a bigger and better FÍS Film Awards in autumn 2021!
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)
Home Movies Anyone?
Let’s Have Some Fun While Learning At Home!
At the FÍS Film Project we would like our learners to use the current COVID-19 social distancing policy
as an opportunity to learn film-making skills for making really cool home movies!
All you need is a mobile phone or tablet device and lots of imagination!
So, let’s have some fun and get filming!
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.
