Cam­eras roll for prodi­gies

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - Jil­lian McKee

A GROUP of ta­lented Year 6 stu­dents at St Fran­cis of As­sisi School are tak­ing the world of film by storm.

The young film­mak­ers have beaten 2500 kids in the KidzFlicks in­ter­na­tional fes­ti­val com­pe­ti­tion last year, tak­ing home two awards for best di­rec­tion and best film by a school. The group sub­mit­ted a hi­lar­i­ous par­ody video of the pop­u­lar Bear Grylls Man vs Wild se­ries, call­ing it Hare Pylls vs. Wild fo­cus­ing on the chal­lenges of ev­ery­day school life.

Af­ter such a pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ence, Year 5 stu­dent Vi­naal Lal en­cour­aged other kids to get in­volved in this year’s fes­ti­val.

KidzFlicks is again call­ing for en­tries from across Western Syd­ney for the 2016 com­pe­ti­tion.

Di­rec­tor Jac­que­line Cos­grove said: “‘We need young voices from Western Syd­ney.

“KidzFlicks has a sig­nif­i­cant au­di­ence so speak up loud and proud, and send your sto­ries into the fes­ti­val so that we can share them with Syd­ney and the rest of the world. We want to hear what you have to say.”

The com­pe­ti­tion is open to chil­dren aged three to 12, and en­tries close on De­cem­ber 16.
