Nemeton TV and WIT Students Lead the Way at the 2019 National Student Media Awards
04 Apr 2019 : News Desk
Sibéal Turraoin filming in Iceland on Natália Uí Fhaoláin’s documentary ‘Ón Rinn go Reykjavik’
Five Students of Waterford Institute of Technology’s Higher Diploma in Television Production, based in Nemeton TV in Gaeltacht na nDéise, have been recognised for their high quality submissions in the categories of Television Documentary or Drama (Léiriúcháin Teilifíse i nGaeilge – Faisnéis & Drámaíocht)

The highly-acclaimed post-graduate Higher Diploma in Television Production is accredited by Waterford Institute of Technology and backed by Údarás na Gaeltachta. The course is heavily industry-focused, aiming to equip students with skills necessary for careers in the media industry, in front or behind the camera.

Oisin Mistéil a young Dublin writer and director was inspired to write his second drama ‘Amach an Sliabh’ while walking in the Comeragh Mountains in Co Waterford. The stunning background of the majestic lake of Coumshingaun became the perfect location and centre-piece for his film about two sisters dealing with grief in very different ways.

Seán Ó Ciardha from Dublin presents and directs his first short documentary ‘Faoin gCeann Tuí’, a remarkable story of how a visit by a BBC television crew to the filmmaker’s ancestral home in Connemara in the 1960s impacted the lives of a generation of his family and local people.

Natália Uí Fhaoláin a Brazilian native and Irish speaker, Natália explores what it means to find a home away from home in her short film ‘Ón Rinn go Reykjavik’. In the film, we hear from two women who exchanged their native homes for very different places, cultures, and languages. Natália meets with An Rinn native Sibéal Turraoin, who now lives in Iceland and explores what similarities and differences they share on their unlikely journeys.

Áine Ryan has written a children’s short drama  ‘Feadóg/Whistle’.  The film tells the story of a magic tin whistle and a young boy called Eoin who is obsessed with playing it. This short film is another string in Áine’s bow as her quirky dramas have already gained her great critical acclaim, including five-star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. 

Amii McGuinness’ short documentary ‘Leanbh Déardaoin’ features a boy named Ben who has Down’s Syndrome. In this heart-warming biopic, we get a glimpse into Ben and his family’s world, we find out his parent’s worries and concerns and we see his impressive achievements from birth to the present day. This moving, feel-good documentary shows how one person can affect so many people in a community.

The National Student Media Awards are open to all media students across Ireland, focusing on film, television, radio, animation, photography, and journalism. 2019 marks the 19th edition of the award ceremony.
