15 years of storytelling

Graham Jessup has been sharing the importance of story-telling through film with schools in the Northern Rivers for 15 years.

At what will be his last year running the Lucinda Awards Mr Jessup said it had been a total pleasure working with the children, teaching them about the process of film-making, and how to appreciate other people's films.

"This is story-telling in the 21st century," Mr Jessup said. "Unless we engage kids in the skills of story telling, we end up watching other people's stories."

Engage them he did, with hundreds of students from nine primary schools around the region gathered in their finery to watch their films at the 13th annual Lucinda Awards at the Lismore Birch Carroll & Coyle cinema.

"The Lucinda Awards are based on the story Oscar and Lucinda," said Mr Jessup. "America has the Oscar, and Lismore has the Lucinda."
