The Dudley-born comedian sent a message to the awards. “Thank you for sending me these films to peruse, enjoy and, in some cases, spit out my tea with laughter,” he said.

“The hard work and perspiration that has gone into these little gems is very easy to see. The makers care about their films and filled each frame with emotion, enthusiasm and energy. I laughed a lot at the winning entry, but I was also moved by the other pieces.”

Khan won the Acting Performance (Male) and Outstanding New Talent awards, and was also named Best Writer, with the co-writer of Man Like Mobeen, Andy Milligan.
