BTEC Level 3 Creative Media Production – Television & Film student, Randjar Abdullah (pictured with Westminster Kingsway College Principal, Andy Wilson) also won an award for his documentary, Dr Kadr. The film follows the doctor’s medical work in the Arabic and Kurdish communities in northern Iraq. Randjar’s impressive film has now brought him to the attention of film directors and the British Arab Council who are interested in working with him in the future.
The awards were held at the British Film Institute and the event included film screenings, workshops and speeches from other Adobe Youth Voices participants.
Roxanne Baptiste, Westminster Kingsway College Tutor, said: “It is a dream for most creative students to have their work shown at the British Film Institute, and to receive an award is an even greater recognition. Our students were consistent in the development of their ideas and produced visually stunning and conceptually engaging projects. Their College Tutors are proud of their achievement and this is an excellent start professionally for their progression and future careers after their time at Westminster Kingsway College.”
