From Cradle to Grave will now be rolled out as part of an innovative new training scheme for staff and carers across the UK.
The film was commissioned by Kate Davies, NHS executive lead for prison and Offender Health and Executive Lead for Equalities in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
Mr Choudhury said: "From Cradle to Grave pulls no punches. It took months of winning the trust of these communities before we could film.
"It was important that they trusted us, supported the idea and liked the end result.
"The entire project was a real partnership, from the NHS commissioning a project that highlights potential faults, to those who allowed us to film them, and the way our team worked together.
"We are all delighted to be nominated for the RTS Midlands Awards. I know that the standard of nominees this year is particularly high, so it is surreal to think this film was judged by my peers and thought worthy of recognition."
The winners of the awards will be announced at a ceremony on Thursday, October 17 by BBC journalist Nina Nannar in Birmingham.
