Congratulations to our Media students who have won Best Story the second year in a row at the Children’s International Film Festival.

Last Thursday,11th May, Al Yasat was recognized on the world stage in Dubai, where their students received three major accolades.

The night began with an announcement that last years CIFF entry, “The Stolen Ring” has just been shortlisted in a film festival in Italy; after they won Best Story as well as 1st Runner up at CIFF in 2016.

Secondly, a few of the Middle School boys were invited to provide a cultural performance, performing a traditional Yola Dance to the audience, as well as special guests from Dubai Customs.

This year’s media students won the ‘Best Story’ award for their film “The Mission”. These young film makers show tremendous creativity and passion when it comes to film-making.

They also met numerous members from Dubai Customs, including the Director, H.E. Ahmed Mahboob Musabih, who kindly encouraged these young Emiratis to keep working hard.

Congratulations again to all Yasat students, and we wish the best of luck to these young film makers in their future career in the media industry.
