Students on Middlesex University’s BA Television Production and BA Film courses took away two out of four top awards at the Royal Television Society (RTS) London Student Awards at the ITV Studios on Tuesday 7 February.
The awards, which recognise the best in student television from across the region, were presented in five categories: Animation, Comedy and Entertainment, Factual, Drama, and Short Film.
TV production students at Middlesex University picked up their third prestigious RTS London Student Award in four years, winning Best Factual film for 'Safest Place In The World'. Directed by Jack Dingley and produced by Hafiza Musammad, the film focuses on a young woman called Cecilie who survives the horrific 2011 Utoya massacre carried out by Anders Breivik.
Middlesex film students Simon James and Daniel Tempel-Merzougui achieved further success when their film ‘Pyre for Hire’, a black comedy focusing on the lives of two undertakers, was awarded Best Comedy and Entertainment.
The winners from the regional competitions will now go on to the National Student Television Awards, hosted this summer.
