The ISP Film Festival is our latest International Learning Opportunity for Students launching this December and  provides an amazing new opportunity for our students aged 13 – 18 years old to take part in a free four-month filmmaking programme from February – May 2021.

Groups of students from ISP Schools will learn about many different aspects of the film industry from planning to post-production and together produce and submit a short film which will be voted on and assessed by other students and a panel of experts. There are many benefits for students in creating a short film and participating in this type of programme, including contributing to their ability to work creatively and collaboratively over a longer period of time and enabling them to apply 21st century technological skills, whilst drawing on their creative and organisational strengths.

The programme aims to offer students a lifelong-memorable experience and provide a platform into possible future career pathways in filmmaking and media.

The Film Festival offers students the exceptional added benefit of being able to interact with film industry professionals through ‘Inspiration Sessions’. These sessions will support students to extend their learning and will not only be with film industry professionals from all over the world but also with course leaders and skilled technicians from the Arts University of Bournemouth in the UK. During these Inspiration Sessions, the industry professionals will share their expertise in a variety of forms, including recorded interviews, interactive forums with Q&A sessions and tutorials.

The ISP Film Festival Awards Ceremony will take place virtually in June 2021 and Films will be awarded in six categories: Best Picture, Best Acting Performance, Best Sound Editing, Best Original Script, Best Cinematography and Best Production Design. Every Film Crew and the entire ISP community will be welcome to attend the Awards Ceremony. We look forward to seeing you there!
