Intinn Youth Film & Mental Health Programme
‘Intinn’ is a film and mental health programme for Transition Year and Senior Cycle students nationwide, delivered direct to your classroom online. ‘Intinn’, meaning ‘mind’ or ‘way of thinking’, offers students the opportunity to explore themes of mental health and personal wellbeing through the accessible medium of film, a Q&A and wellbeing webinar delivered by filmmakers and mental health professionals.
In 2020 the ‘Intinn’ Programme presented a screening of the film I Used to Live Here, a Q&A with director Frank Berry, actor Jordanne Jones and Youth Mental Health Advocate Dr Tony Bates. Students were then invited to participate in a wellbeing webinar with Dr Johnny Goodwin, UCC School of Nursing, and follow in-classroom activities.
Building on the success of the Intinn programme in 2020, which engaged with 4000 students and teachers nationwide, CIFF is delighted to offer the opportunity to Transition Year and Senior Cycle students across Ireland to participate in the Intinn Programme this Spring 2021, now supported by an important new Research Project conducted by our partner, UCC, which focuses on young people’s wellbeing.
‘Intinn’ is proudly supported by Creative Ireland, Rethink Ireland and ESB Energy for Generations Fund.
