Fís Film Project


FÍS Film Project

There is an open invitation to all Dept. of Education designated Irish primary schools to enter their films into the annual national FÍS Film Awards competition.  There is no need to register in advance.  To enter, primary schools across the country are asked to create an (up to) five-minute film on a subject of their choice.  Before you begin check out the rules and guidelines and judging criteria for further details.

 Supporting Film in the Primary Classroom

FÍS is a highly successful film project for primary schools that explores film as a medium of expression in relation to the arts, and introduces children to aspects of the film-making process.

The FÍS Film Project is a wonderful example of a project that encourages creativity and imagination among children and their teachers in Irish primary schools. Organised jointly by PDST Technology in Education and Dun Laoghaire Institute for Art, Design & Technology (IADT), the project culminates each year in the annual FÍS Film Festival where 25 films are shortlisted for awards in what is essentially an "Oscars" ceremony for Irish schoolchildren.

Get Involved in FÍS!

The FÍS Storyboard Storytelling competition provides an opportunity for pupils to visually interpret a story or concept or topic, use artistic media and different types of shots to convey that story in an imaginative and creative way.  A full brief, judging criteria and how to enter this exciting competition is available here.

The brief provides suggested themes & topics, storyboard presentation tips, judging criteria and general competition guidelines for teachers. Entries will be categorized on the basis of class age / level and prizes will be awarded across a variety of categories.
