The Grierson Trust is investigating “several reports” made relating to an incident of anti-Jewish racism perpetrated by an individual at last week’s Grierson Awards.
The ceremony celebrating British documentaries was held at Southbank’s Queen Elizabeth Hall on Thursday 9 November, with documentaries such as Once Upon a Time in Northern Ireland and All That Breathes among those being honoured.
In a statement, the Grierson Trust said: “We are appalled to have received several reports of anti-Jewish racism by an individual at the reception after the Grierson Awards last Thursday night.
“We are urgently investigating these reports to decide as soon as possible on a course of action.”
The statement was released today, with further updates on the investigation understood to be forthcoming.
