Bray stu­dents’ film tal­ents recog­nised

Bray People - - NEWS -

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.

Year One TV and Film stu­dents Craig Don­nelly and Stephen Kyne.
