All three groups produced excellent films that will form part of the IB students’ portfolios. Andy Groark, Film Teacher at ACS Hillingdon said: "The trip was an excellent chance to bring the film students from Grades 9-12 together, and they all showed tremendous positivity and enthusiasm throughout the festival. It was a great experience that inspires students to share their stories on an international stage and elevates their skills to a professional level.
