Northern Film School students also took home the Drama award with Worry-Fear-Unease. The Triptych, which the judges called “cinematic, with great art direction, strong performances and an ambitious story structure”.

RTS Yorkshire Chair Michael Donnelly said: “Celebrating the next generation of film-makers is some of the most exciting and important work of the RTS. The pieces this year have shown exemplary skill and proficiency; the judges have been blown away.”
