NFTS receives the award for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema at this year's BAFTAs

19 February, 2018


Lord Puttnam is delighted that the National Film and Television School (NFTS) received the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema Award at this year’s BAFTAs. He has been involved with the school for several decades, having acted as Chair from 1987 to 1996, and became its Lifetime President in July 2017. To have BAFTA acknowledge the contribution the NFTS has made to British culture and industry has been hugely rewarding for all its students, teachers and supporters. It also comes at a time when the NFTS is enjoying one of its most successful and fruitful periods, with 13 graduate films nominated for Oscars and BAFTAs, and 114 graduates credited on Oscar and BAFTA nominated films. Lord Puttnam couldn’t be happier to see the school he has been so deeply involved with grow from strength to strength – and wishes all its students and alumni the warmest of congratulations.
