Students, parents, Rotarians and Friends of Rotary gathered to see the 16 short films produced by the students of Escolas Silves Sul during the first year of the Digital Media Project. The films included the six films shortlisted for the Wildern School´ Oscars in Southampton in July. The students that travelled to the UK for the ceremony were present and the evening was a celebration of their success. The audience were entralled by the films and astounded that the students had achieved so much with so little equipment. The evening started with wine and nibbles and guests had an opportunity to talk with students and staff about the impact of the project. Pam Winn gave a short presentation about the project to see the presentation click here http://prezi.com/embed/etm7ui2efrzq/?bgcolor=ffffff&lock_to_path=1&autoplay=0&autohide_ctrls=0&features=undefined&token=undefined&disabled_features=undefined. This is the first of many events to support the continuation of the project and €230 was raised from donations. It is hoped to expand the project to more students this year and to hold the first Oscar ceremony on the Algarve in March. The Algarve Oscars will be hosted by Escola Silves Sul and a group of students from Wildern School will travel to the Algarve and will enter their films for the Algarve Oscars.
