'Once again our students' work has been nominated alongside the best of creative content produced by Film & TV courses across Ireland for the prestigious Royal Television Society Student Awards. It is testament to the hard work and dedication that our students put into these projects over the course of a full academic year. Last year we had 2 winners at these awards; Bullet Casings in the Graveyard won Best Factual and Chloe O'Reilly won the award for Best Editing for the TV drama pilot Unravel. We're looking forward to the awards ceremony in the RTE Studios next week and are hoping to take back another trophy to add to our display cabinet'.
