Bray students’ film talents recognised
STUDENTS from BIFE are lighting up the small screen with their films on mental health.
The TV and Film students at the college were recognised in the special short-film competition to raise awareness about mental health, Walk in My Shoes.
The judges, including Michael Doherty from the RTÉ Guide, shortlisted ten films for the ‘Walk in My Shoes’ ceremony and this shortlist included three BIFE students.
The two main objectives for the film competition were to improve awareness about mental health and to remove the stigma associated with mental health difficulties.
The awards were held in St Patrick’s University Hospital last Wednesday night where there was a screening of all the short listed films.
Year 1 students Stephen Kyne and Craig Donnelly won second and third place overall with Killian O’Reilly from Year 2 included in the top ten list.
College tutors Michael Mc Cudden, Noel McAoidh and Aisling Crudden said they were delighted and proud of the success and are looking forward to future projects undertaken by the students.
