Korovuto College defended their title at the popular Film Fiji and Fijian Made Film Awards at the Damodar V-Max Cinema at Damodar City Centre in Suva on Friday night.

The West school also scooped the Best Costume and Makeup award for their movie Real Love No Charge and Best Supporting Actress went to Lavenia Nayacalevu.

Another West school Swami Vivekananda College scooped six titles.

25 films from schools in all the divisions were shown on social media and other platforms leading up to the event.

Chief guest, Attorney-General and Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, called on school students to continue building their talents in the film industry even after they have completed high school.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said while it was a ‘baby industry’ here it was important to note the power of filmmaking and its opportunities.
