Join us at 195 Piccadilly ahead of the EE British Academy Film Awards 2016 for the latest photographic exhibition ‘BAFTA: For the Love of Film’.

Exhibition Free Entry: Please book in advance

10.00am-5pm (Last admission 4.30pm)

The exhibition showcases specially commissioned work by photographer Phil Fisk that celebrates the passion and craft that goes into creating a film.

‘For The Love Of Film’ includes new portraits and behind-the-scenes images which shine a light on the whole filmmaking process, from famous faces in front of the camera to the magicians behind the scenes. The different roles captured by Fisk’s camera range from casting agents to the starry cast, cinematographers to costume designers, alongside some sneak peaks into the world of the movie set, including Harry Potter.

Visitors will also get the chance to delve a bit deeper through an exhibition talks programme across the weekend, from learning how a master photographer plans his shoot to what it feels like to be in front of the lens. Informal guided tours of the exhibition are also available.

Fisk’s remarkable work has previously been seen at The Roundhouse, the Association of Photographers Gallery and at BAFTA as part of the exhibition ‘BAFTA, Backstage’. His distinctive portraits make visible not just the personality but the working world of his subjects, including actors such as David Oyelowo (Selma, Interstellar), and Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars: The Force Awakens), director Terry Gilliam (Brazil, Tideland), cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema (Interstellar, Spectre), casting director Nina Gold (The King’s Speech, The Imitation Game) and producer Alison Owen (Elizabeth, Suffragette). The portraits capture the spirit of BAFTA and all that it celebrates offering a rare insight into the award-winning people behind the movies.

A catalogue of the photography in the exhibition will be available, as well as other catalogues and postcards from the BAFTA Archive.
