Rehan Ahmed, a producer/director at HUM Network Ltd has been bagged the Best Documentary Short award at the World Television Awards organized every year by the Asia Pacific Institute for Broadcasting.
Having experience in documentary-film making, Rehan chose the format of a documentary short. His ten- minute long film titled Ozone- The Human Factor was funded for him by the HUM TV and revolved around a teenager convincing her parents that buying electronics that emit CFCs endangers the world that we live in. The short was picked up as a clear winner by a seven-member jury featuring prominent film-makers from seven countries including India.
Rehan said he was proud of himself and his employers for bringing home another international award for a documentary film, hot on the heels of Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy’s award. He will be leaving for Malaysia at the end of May to receive his award and attend a ceremony honouring the winners of the competition.
