‘People might say it’s hard, but I can tell you it’s achievable. You just need a good group and teachers to push you higher’. Meysa, Y9
Arts and Media School Islington Film Club was in competition on 14th March, in the category Film Club of the Year 13 and Over, at this year’s Into Film Awards Ceremony. Actor and Into Film Ambassador, Eddie Redmayne read out the nominations, which also included Milton Keynes College and John Paul Academy (winners).
The annual Into Film Award Ceremony is an opportunity to showcase the very best efforts of young people across the nations; from far flung cities and remote rural areas across the UK.
The winners, across all categories, have sent out a powerful message to the extended film community about the value of media partnerships in schools, film education embedded in the school curriculum, cultural inclusivity and especially about the amazing creative energy of young people.
Congratulations to AMSI Film Club members, for making it possible for Arts and Media School Islington to be represented on Screen 1 at Odeon Leicester Square London, at the truly remarkable, Into Film Awards Ceremony, 2017.
