BFI London Film Festival Awards

A Cinematic Production

Banqueting House

The Challenge

For the fourth year running, Event Concept was trusted to deliver the creative and technical production for the BFI London Film Festival Awards.

The event would be held at Banqueting House – one of London’s grandest spaces and the perfect setting for a red carpet occasion.

Our challenge? To yet again create a ceremony that would blend A-list glamour with relaxed intimacy.

Our Solution

An elegant reception in the softly lit Undercroft began proceedings, followed by a superb three-course meal in The Main Hall.

The stunning set was positioned to maintain an intimate feel. Large bespoke lettering brought playfulness to the backdrop, with two projection screens floating effortlessly below the balcony. This offered freedom for creative and intelligent lighting within the set.

The Experience

The star of the evening was Cate Blanchett, described by Sir Ian McKellen as “the strong woman, the great actress”. Ms Blanchett received the British Film Institute fellowship. This has been awarded to a long line of prominent actors and directors, including Helena Bonham Carter, Christopher Lee and Ralph Fiennes.
