“The institute has an impressive track record of awards success in film and television and I am delighted that the high calibre of our students’ work has been acknowledged once again. Our hands-on approach to teaching and learning means that our students have the opportunity to create and produce content from the moment they arrive at DkIT. The presentation of this work at awards and festivals is an important learning experience which will prepare them for entering the industry following graduation."
