Belfast Met film students scored a hat-trick by scooping three out of five awards at the Royal Television Society NI student Awards.

The awards, supported by the Department of Communities was part of Creativity Month, which took place on March 29 at the Black Box in Belfast.

Students on the HND Creative Media (TV & Film) picked up the Comedy and Entertainment Award sponsored by Stellify Media for the film Mo Chara.

A second group won the Factual Award sponsored by Crawford McCann for The Shipyard Poet and a third group won the Short Feature Award for Kings Park Primary School. Student Steve Earley was also highly commended for his film.

At the event, more than 100 guests joined host Jacqui Berkeley (BBC), keynote speaker Stephen Nolan (BBC) and RTS NI Student Award 16 national winner (camera work) Seán Murray to toast the rising stars of the creative industries and celebrate the key relationship between the creative sector and the education section.

The RTS NI Student Awards exist to recognise the importance of education within the television and media industry. Last night highlighted how crucial it is that the sectors work together as political and industry figures joined tutors in supporting the student winners and nominees. Entries came in from almost every Further and Higher Education college and university across Northern Ireland.
