We are excited to share in Grade 12 student Mathilda Khoo’s film making success. Mathilda is well known around school as a very talented, award-winning filmmaker, and she has recently won another award for a film she entered in the Across Asia Youth Film Festival (AAYFF). Mathilda’s short film, Time, won the award for Best Experimental Film.
Although she takes arts subjects and is a member of the IGBIS Film Club at school, Mathilda finds time to work on the majority of her films outside of school. Mathilda is enrolled in our IB Career-related Programme, and hopes to head to a university with a strong film programme when she graduates from IGBIS next year.
This year the AAYFF competition received 244 entries from 71 schools in 12 countries. The award ceremony was held at International School Ho Chi Minh City, in Vietnam. Congratulations Mathilda!
