Budding ISP filmmakers complete a four-month course learning about everything from storyboarding to special effects in sessions delivered by experts from the film industry.

The course gives students the tools they need to work in teams to script, film and edit their own short film. This is a remarkable opportunity for students to explore issues and themes which are important to them and share their work on a global stage.

Students come together to discuss and share their experiences with each other and have the exciting opportunity to get feedback from film industry professionals throughout the course.

This unforgettable multi-disciplinary project teaches students the importance of collaboration in achieving a common goal and provides an insight into career pathways in film and media.

Of course, no film festival would be complete without an awards ceremony with guest speakers and incredible prizes! This year the Film Festival Awards Ceremony will be online. Which film crews will be awarded for their outstanding 5-minute short? Next stop – ISP Film Festival!

Overall I acquired a lot of knowledge and whenever I need to do something video related, I know what sites to use for editing, copyright free music, free stock footage, and more. I think I'm more prepared for different career paths, presentations, and other creative opportunities.

When that "lightbulb" moment went off and I could just see the creativity on all of my students faces.

It’s a wonderful program, it helped me grow my knowledge on the filmmaking process and develop deeper my skills in storyboarding, artistic skills, and editing abilities while working with my friends; I believe that other students can benefit from this wonderful program.
