The Grierson Trust is “urgently investigating” reports of an incident of anti-Jewish racism at the reception of the Grierson documentary awards last week.
The trust has released a statement about the reports saying
“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 Grierson Trust wants to make it clear to our Jewish colleagues in the media and the creative arts that we stand with them to condemn antisemitism and, of course to stamp it out in our industry and beyond. We are very concerned with the rise in divisive and hateful behaviours of all kinds. We are deeply committed to an inclusive, diverse industry and environment for everyone and we will not tolerate any form of racism.”
