Shrewsbury International School Bangkok, Riverside – Celebrates Young Filmmakers at Second Annual Junior Film Festival

Shrewsbury International School Bangkok, Riverside, recently hosted their second annual Junior Film Festival, which showcased the exemplary filmmaking talents of Year 4, 5 and 6 students. All Shrewsbury schools value and use the “whole self” curriculum, and filmmaking serves as a way to combine traditional educational lessons with creativity and skills that are best developed outside of the classroom.

Guest judges, all successful members of the film industry, travelled from around the world to contribute their expertise and carefully select award winners. The judging panel consisted of esteemed actors, cinematographers, directors, producers and writers. Films were judged in seven categories, including Best of Year 4, Best of Year 5 and Best of Year 6, Best Overall Film, Best Soundtrack, Best Voiceover and Best Actor. The event was hosted in Riverside Campus’s Memorial Hall, equipped with a red carpet for filmmakers, judges and audience members alike to enter the event in true Hollywood fashion. 

“We are excitedly awaiting the second instalment of our annual Junior film festival, this year with a James Bond theme,” Philip Stewart, Head of Junior School, said. “All the staff involved in this project have been taken aback by the improvements in quality from this year’s films. Alongside improved final projects, staff have also noted that throughout the process there was improved collaboration, technical and oracy skills – all part of our desired outcomes.”

A well-rounded educational experience is a top priority at Shrewsbury Bangkok, and the annual Junior Film Festival exemplifies the many unique opportunities provided to students at the school. Through teamwork, fostering creativity, strengthening oracy skills and developing new technical abilities, filmmaking enriches the curriculum in an imaginative manner, providing students with multifaceted educational benefits.

Since 2003, our students’ exceptional achievements inside and outside the classroom have established our reputation as one of Thailand’s leading British international schools.
