International College will be holding its 2nd annual film festival on the 4th of May, 2016. During this event, selected movies made by our Middle schools (Ras Beirut and Ain Aar) and Secondary School students will be screened for the IC family and the general public. The theme for the 2016 Film Festival is 'Global Citizens through Social Action'.
The registered students attended the first training session which took place on Saturday, October 31, 2015 at International College – Ras Beirut. During that day, two parallel training sessions were conducted, the first one, which targeted the Middle School students (Ain Aar), was conducted by Mrs. Mimosa Arawi, Mr. Ryan Wilson, Mr. Walid Matta and Mr. George Hanna and the second one, which targeted the Secondary School Students, was conducted by Mr. Riad Chirazi, Mr. Fuad Halwani and Mr. Farid Karam.
During these parallel sessions, the students attended two workshops. The first one was dedicated to the theme of this year’s festival “Global Citizens through Social Action” and the second one was dedicated to training students on the techniques of developing an idea. The students, in groups of 4 or 5, are expected to submit an outline or a pitch of their idea during the month of November. The selected groups will attend three additional training sessions before they submit the final cut of their short movie.
