A film about a paper plane throwing competition and a story about the experiences of a student with disability being bullied have been voted the most popular films in this year’s Film By Online Festival.

‘Retro reflective and the paper plane competition’ from Elderslie Public School and ‘I’m human, just like you’ from Bossley Park High School received the most votes in the People’s Choice award from the online film festivals showcased in a live stream last week.

More than 3,000 votes were cast for the 31 films shown across the two festivals.

The Elderslie Public School students incorporated the concept of being reflective into the film about participating in a paper plane throwing competition.

Bossley Park High School’s film shared an important and powerful message about the negative impacts of bullying, particularly on a student with disability.
