On February 14th, 2016, BAFTA New York welcomed members and guests to the EE British Academy Film Awards Viewing Party held at NeueHouse, a private members’ club in the heart of New York.
Guests mingled throughout the club which included a private screening room and a library with digitial walls for extra viewing. An open bar, courtesy of Diageo, and passed hors d'oeuvres designed around the Best Film nominees - "The Big Short-rib sliders", "The Revenant polpette" (a wild boar meatball) and an "Inside Out" Veggie Sushi Roll - made for a spectacular evening.
125 members and guests attended, and each went home with a gift bag full of goodies including East India Company chocolates and biscuits, The Republic of Tea samples, L'Oreal cosmetics, Elemis skin care products, and of course, a BAFTA New York tote bag. For the grand raffle prize, one lucky member won a two-night stay in a suite at The Savoy Hotel in London!
