Also picking up two honours was RTÉ Television who scooped the Arts Documentary gong for Máirtín Ó Cadhain: Rí An Fhocail and the Current Affairs award for Prime Time Investigates: Sex Traffic – both productions scooping similar awards at the IFTAs earlier this year.

Finally, the Irish/Scottish co-produced feature True North won the Feature Length Drama award.
