 Ayodeji Shogbamimu, James Slattery, Jolene Mairs, Peadar Mitchell, Kevin McSorley, Kevin Jackson (Chair of NI Skillset), Michael Wilson (MD UTV) and Dr Cahal McLaughlin (Ulster)Ulster Television hosted the first MA Documentary Practice graduation show 22nd October 2008. The course, which is unique in Ireland, produced its first end of year show with five short films that offered a range of subjects, from artist to missionary, and a range of style, from observational to impressionistic, that mirror the course’s attempt to reflect the diversity of filmmaking that is categorised as documentary. Dr. Cahal McLaughlin, the course director, stated, "The students’ development over the year and their work throughout the course has been inspiring. We are confident that these young filmmakers will go on to produce work that is both appealing and challenging."
