London South Bank University (LSBU) students won two awards in the prestigious Royal Television Society (RTS) London Student Television Awards on Wednesday (March 27) night.

LSBU students took home the award for the Best Long form Documentary ‘Some Hairs Never Fall’ (Romina Osterling and Luke Reid), which tells the story of women wigmakers in the highlands of Peru. 

Psychological thriller ‘Four Soldiers’ won LSBU’s second award for Best Editing (Nikita Listopad). The film follows a group of soldiers trying to rescue a pilot. 

“Thank you to the tutors who really helped me structure the film. I feel next level emotions. This is only the beginning,” said winner Nikita Listopad. 

“I am overjoyed that people enjoyed this film and look forward to making more,” said winner and third year Film Practice student Romina Osterling.

LSBU students were nominated for five awards across a wide range of categories – drama, factual, camera, editing and production design.

“Competition in these awards is always fierce, so this is a testament to our talented students and the dedicated academic and technical team who support them to create exceptional film work,” said LSBU’S Professor Lucy Brown, Head of Division for Film. “We are very proud of this success, and it reaffirms our position as a leading institution in nurturing future film and TV makers.”

This year marks the sixth year in a row that LSBU students and graduates won awards at the RTS London Student Television ceremony.

The awards reward the talent, potential and enthusiasm of students in colleges and universities for the creation of film and video content.
