Curtin Mass Comm student films screened on RTM television



Two documentary films made by Curtin Sarawak’s very own BA Mass Communication students have been screened on RTM TV 1’s Program Karyawan Muda 2008 show in September; the production of both films was supervised by Film & Television Lecturer Rama Venkatasawmy. Also screened were interviews with the students involved – conducted by Mass Communication Lecturer Mawi Taip and recorded in the Film & Television facilities.

Both films have been entered in the Program Karyawan Muda 2008 competition – a national short film competition jointly organised by Filem Negara Malaysia, Radio Televisyen Malaysia and the Malaysian Ministry of Information.
