BAFTA-winning director, producer and writer, Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing, Inside Man, BlacKkKlansman) will deliver BAFTA’s prestigious film lecture and share insights into his craft.

The David Lean Lecture continues the legacy of the great director David Lean, one of the founders of the British Film Academy (as it was then known) in 1947. The lecture aims to inspire and inform by providing an insight into the experiences and creative achievements of some of the world’s most compelling filmmakers. Previous speakers include David O Russell, Lone Scherfig and Paul Greengrass.

The Lecture is generously funded by The David Lean Foundation, which continues to support and encourage excellence in British film making.
