Queen’s University Belfast took home the principal prizes from the RTS Northern Ireland Student Awards in late March.
The Drama award went to Roots, the story of an insecure black student who tries to straighten her natural afro hair to fit in with a predominately white Belfast. Defining Street Food was awarded the Factual prize.
A Highly Commended award was given to another Queen’s University film, Made in the Emerald Isle.
UTV journalist Stewart Robson hosted the ceremony at the Black Box, Belfast, with Tessa Fleming speaking about her career journey, from journalism college to presenting on BBC Northern Ireland, as she gave the Joe McKinney Memorial Keynote Speech.
RTS Northern Ireland Chair Fiona Campbell said: “The judges were hugely impressed by the creativity and imagination shown in this year’s entries.”
