Rwandan Genocide Survivor among BAFTA Scholars


Rosser, Michael, Screen International


Hosea Ntaborwa is one of 16 students to receive a Prince William Scholarship in Film, Television and Games, supported by BAFTA and Warner Bros.

Ntaborwa, from south London, will receive £7,500 to study for a Diploma in Production Sound for Film and Television at the National Film and Television School (NFTS).

The 29-year-old was born in Rwanda and lived through the genocide of 1994, before moving to the UK aged 16. He graduated from the University of West London in 2009 with a Music Technology Specialist degree and currently works as a sales advisor in a clothing shop.

Ntaborwa said: "There are not enough words I can use to express the way I feel about being awarded a Prince William Scholarship, but let me try: I've heard the famous catchphrase "dreams come true" on numerous occasions, but it has never resonated with me until now.

"The scholarship is going to assist me in turning my dreams into reality and my future has never looked brighter than this. I have faced many obstacles in my life and being awarded this scholarship means funding won't become one of them.

"I would love to use this opportunity to thank BAFTA and Warner Bros. for their great support and for allowing someone like me to dream even bigger."

As well as receiving financial support of up to £10,000, the winners - who might otherwise have struggled to fund their studies - will also receive one-to-one mentoring by BAFTA members and award-winners in their fields.

The annual scheme also includes three returning scholars from last year and three beneficiaries of the Prince William scholarships.

Other recipients include Christopher Schlechte-Bond, from Cheshire, awarded £9,700 to complete the MComp in Composition for Screen at the Royal College of Music in London. The 22-year-old previously studied Music at King's College London and gives private lessons in piano and composition to support his studies.

Shivani Shah, from Leicester, is awarded £10,000 to continue her studies for the MA Digital Effects at the National Film and Television School (NFTS). The 22-year-old previously studied Cinema and Photography at Leeds University.

Tom Barnes, from Reading, is awarded £4,200 towards the MComp in Composition for Screen at the Royal College of Music in London. Aged 22, Barnes has a degree in International History from LSE (The London School of Economics and Political Science). He is also a freelance composer and Musical Director.

Adam Barnett, from Newcastle, is awarded £10,000 to complete the MA Cinematography course at the National Film and Television School (NFTS). …
