A number of students, most of whom have since graduated, were involved in making the documentary.
They are Siobhan Fahey, Johnny Belanov, Mahmud Hasan Kayesh, Valerie Theuns and Craig Andrew Robertson.
Professor Nick Higgins, director of UWS’s Creative Media Academy and Programme Leader for the MA Filmmaking degree, said: “This is a remarkable achievement for the team, and a strong endorsement for both the MA Filmmaking course and the wider Creative Media Academy.
“Our graduates are consistently making an impact on the industry, producing innovative, inspiring and, indeed, influential work, and I am really pleased that this powerful film and the talent involved in making it have been recognised at this level.”
The shortlisting is the latest in a string of prestigious awards and nominations for MA Filmmaking productions, including winning the Royal Television Society’s Best UK Student Drama Award, and a nomination for the One World Media Best Student Film.
