Congratulations to Luke O'Grady and Matt Doherty both Year 14 MIA pupils who have earned places on the NI Screen Works Academy, being held early December in Derry City and Belfast. Luke will be attending the academy on Special (Visual) Effects and Matt will be attending the specialised academy on Animation.
Also, congratulations to Luke O'Grady 14F who entered his GCSE film 'Dishes' into the Newark International Film Festival in which he was recently shortlisted as a semifinalist. The Newark International Film Festival is a three-day festival that showcases the innovation and breadth of the film industry. Located 15 minutes from New York, Newark IFF maximizes exposure for your film, screenplay or series by drawing film and entertainment leaders from both NYC and LA.
Luke has also recently entered his AS Film 'Forgive Us Our Trespasses", into the Asti Movie Awards in Italy, so fingers crossed it will do well there also.
