BAFTA’s Film Awards are, of course, a particularly British celebration of excellence: we’ve added an extra nomination to the Outstanding British Film category, recognising just how many incredible lms worthy of the honour are being created with signi cant UK involvement. This adds to our other exclusively British awards which include Outstanding Debut By A British Writer, Director Or Producer and Outstanding British Contribution To Cinema. It is also rewarding to see so much British talent at the heart of the nominated lms made outside of the UK. However, BAFTA is part of an international lm culture and tonight’s ceremony is a celebration of the most remarkably talented individuals working in front of and behind the camera, wherever they hail from. Congratulations to all the nominees this evening. Tonight is a retrospective of sorts, but tomorrow we look to the future: our charitable work is built on taking your outstanding achievements and inspiring the next generation of talent. BAFTA’s charitable work is about expanding the horizons of young people, ensuring that the most talented aren’t dissuaded from considering a career in lm, television or games, whatever their background. Our year-round programme of learning events and initiatives – more than 250 a year – are open to the public and re ected on our BAFTA Guru website, where BAFTA nominees and other expert practitioners share their knowledge through Q&As, masterclasses, lectures, career tips and advice. There are few better ways to impart knowledge and wisdom than through direct interaction and personal mentoring, in person or online – it can help them take a career-de ning step into the industry. Many of you can name the person that opened the door for you, who helped guide you into your craft and the world you’re very much part of today. So in 2014, we’re campaigning to extend young people’s networks by increasing our pool of mentors, and people o ering work placements at their companies. Please support Give Something Back, our new campaign supporting young creative people, by visiting bafta.org to nd out ways in which you can help. And thank you to those who already have. Finally, congratulations to the leading lady of her generation, Dame Helen Mirren, who receives the Fellowship this evening, and to Peter Greenaway, the innovative lmmaker who is justly rewarded with the Outstanding British Contribution To Cinema award. Have an excellent evening. W E L C O M E 7 John Willis Chairman of the Academy WELCOME — Sponsor’s Message s CEO of EE, it is my pleasure to once again be partnering with BAFTA – a relationship that is now in its 16th year. The EE British Academy Film Awards is the most important night in the UK lm industry calendar, and the international and domestic talent walking the red carpet tonight is testimony to its continued importance, both here and across the globe. Like BAFTA, EE has grown, evolved and innovated over the years. For us, that has never been more exciting than over the past 18 months, when we pioneered superfast 4G technology and created a new digital backbone for the UK. Our 4G service has expanded rapidly across the country, and the UK is now a global leader in data speeds, with the EE network capable of delivering up to 300mbps – that’s three times faster than the fastest xed-line broadband speeds. And it’s those kinds of speeds that are changing industries and opening up more opportunities for connectivity and creativity than ever before. The lm industry is a great example. Behind the scenes, we are helping teams speed up production times, enabling the faster coding of lms, and giving editors the power to work in isolated locations anywhere in the world. Audiences are also bene ting from our superfast 4GEE network with customers accessing lms anywhere, anytime, whether they are at home, or out and about. These truly are exciting times for the lm industry and its fans. As tonight’s lead sponsor, we are proud to present our own award – the EE Rising Star Award, which identi es and celebrates the best in emerging talent. Established nine years ago, in honour of casting director Mary Selway, the award recognises a young actor or actress who has demonstrated exceptional talent and ambition, and has begun to capture the imagination of the British public. It remains the only one of tonight’s awards to be voted for by the British public, and its roll call of previous winners includes Tom Hardy, Kristen Stewart, Noel Clarke, James McAvoy and Adam Deacon, with Juno Temple winning the award in 2013. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our EE Rising Star jury for their expertise, time and commitment in selecting the shortlist of ve Rising Stars: Pippa Harris (jury chair), Gemma Arterton, Kirk Jones, Peter Czernin, Priya Elan, Charles Gant, Chris Hewitt, Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, Mark Kermode, Kate Lee, Karen Lindsay-Stewart and Martin Robinson. It’s going to be a wonderful evening, so let’s settle in, enjoy and celebrate the very best of creativity in lm. W E L C O M E 9 Olaf Swantee CEO, EE Warner Bros.

It informs through immersion and transports with its performances and beauty – both loving and pitiless. There are shockingly few lms related to slavery and those that ping on awards’ radars tend to be grand narratives with white protagonists, such as Amistad (1997) or the BAFTA-nominated Lincoln (2012) – ne stories, but told from the BEST FILM NOMINEES Anthony Katagas, Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Steve McQueen OTH ER N O M I N ATED CATEGORIES Adapted Screenplay; Cinematography; Director; Editing; Leading Actor; Original Music; Production Design; Supporting Actor; Supporting Actress outside. Instead, Steve McQueen puts us inside the experience. The director had been looking for a way to explore 19th century slavery when his wife gave him the memoir of Solomon Northup, a free citizen of 1840s’ New York who was abducted and sold into slavery in the South. McQueen and screenwriter John Ridley use this remarkable man as our conduit into a horror not often enough imagined. We stand beside him as he su ers, from the frank evil of Paul Giamatti’s slave trader, to the tortured menace of Michael Fassbender’s plantation owner. Though perhaps the most troubling character is Benedict Cumberbatch’s more kindly slaver Ford, who smothers conscience with fear, prompting the question: would we do the same? One criticism has been that Northup is too passive a protagonist, which seems a slightly peculiar observation to make of a true story about a man stuck in slavery. The lm shares something of the formalist approach of McQueen’s previous lms Hunger (2008), which won the Outstanding Debut BAFTA in 2009, and double BAFTAnominee Shame (2011) – both about being trapped, either physically or mentally – and perhaps a more conservative style or ostentatiously heroic lead might have made for a more accessible picture, but it wouldn’t be as honest. We’re used to a certain degree of self-determination in our characters – and our lives – which the grind of this reality does not allow. (It is a reality not simply of the past, either: charities such as Love146 are working to highlight and end the contemporary problem. The United Nations estimates there are 20.9 million people enslaved today.) Still, Northup does consider escaping and ghts to be free, while Chiwetel Ejiofor’s miraculous performance ensures that, even in his silent struggles, the soul of the character speaks. Perhaps a sense of Solomon’s passivity is exaggerated because the lm arrives a year after the shot-for-the-hip, Western wish-ful lment fantasy of Django Unchained (2012). It won’t be long, if it hasn’t happened already, before some enterprising cinema plays them in a double bill. But the running order can now be reversed, as it should be. Watch McQueen’s picture rst, because before you can play with the truth, people need to know the truth. It can set them free. 45 B E S T F I L M N O M I N E E 46 B E S T F I L M N O M I N E E 47 B E S T AMERICAN HUSTLE 48 Words by F I L M Matthew Leyland Matthew Leyland is reviews editor for Total Film N O M I N E E airpieces trump set pieces in American Hustle. That’s not a criticism: David O. Russell’s lm aunts an attention to character detail rare among con capers. Usually, plot is the main motor, tautly snaking its way through multiple switchbacks en route to the grand nal rug-pull. There’s one of those here, but we’re drawn in by a di erent kind of rug: the one seasoned trickster Irving (Christian Bale) carefully pastes to his head in the opening scene. As well as a mesmerising display in itself, it’s an intro that neatly ags up the lm’s themes of (false) appearances, (shifting) identities and making oneself (comb-)over. As slippery as the characters are, we’re able to latch on to them. Firstly, because Russell and co-writer Eric Singer unmask vulnerabilities, explore aws and extend empathy. “More than anything, I want you to fall in love with them,” says the director of his hustlers. Secondly, because of a starry cast setting their collective charisma to full beam. Beer-bellied but light on his feet, Bale hasn’t exed his comic chops so enjoyably since American Psycho (2000) – the di erence being that Irving is a rogue we can root for: a basically decent desperado whose small-time swindling lands him at the centre of a big-time FBI-sponsored scam involving fake sheiks and dodgy politicians. His partner in crime is exstripper Sydney: Amy Adams dressed to kill (and thrill, given the – tactical – amount of midri on show) in a performance that turns on a dime from smooth criminality to raw emotion. While Bale and Adams do the heavy grifting, Russell re-enlists his Silver Linings Playbook (2012) players Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence (both BAFTA-nominated for their performances in that lm, which also won Russell the Adapted Screenplay prize) in roles where they again essay controlled explosiveness. As tightly wound as his (magni cent) perm, Cooper is Richie, the ambitious FBI agent orchestrating the sheik-down; just because he’s on the right side of the law doesn’t make him any less given to bad, mad decisions. And Lawrence – as Irving’s wild wife Rosalyn – is a force of nature, crowned by a blonde tornado of hair. Just don’t let her near a microwave! There’s also Jeremy Renner, whose Carmine is as cuddly a corrupt mayor as you will ever meet. Our heroes irt, ght, form fragile alliances… front and centre throughout, the tangled to-andfro of human relationships brings an organic vibe to an often mechanical genre. Not only giving the con caper a fresh twist, Russell also spring cleans the ’70s – the decade fashion forgot, but lms never do. The vibrant stylings feel more lived-in than kitsch, while familiar chart hits get their groove back via some impeccable song-to-scene matchmaking: the hot throb BEST FILM NOMINEES Charles Roven, Richard Suckle, Megan Ellison, Jonathan Gordon N O M I N E E F I L M OTH ER N O M I N ATED CATEGORIES Costume Design; Director; Leading Actor; Leading Actress; Make Up & Hair; Original Screenplay; Production Design; Supporting Actor; Supporting Actress 49 B E S T of ‘I Feel Love’ set to Sydney/Richie’s dirty discodancing, or the mood-swinging ‘Live And Let Die’, transformed into a showstopping anthem for the mood-swinging Rosalyn. Despite a glancing reference to Watergate/ Vietnam, American Hustle doesn’t have a political axe to grind. It’s a group portrait of dishonest people from a sincerely talented lmmaker capable of turning a revolving laundry rack into a romantic idyll. And one whose screwball brilliance kicks in as soon as the needle drops: “Some of this actually happened,” winks the opening caption (a nod to the story’s loose roots in the real-life Abscam operation). Only the facts have been changed, for our supreme entertainment.

But the great achievement of Paul Greengrass’ lm is to nd the humanity behind the headlines, and to put the hijacking of the cargo ship Maersk Alabama in a wider context – all while ratcheting up the tension unbearably. The lm builds a clash between two captains and, through them, two cultures. There’s an inevitability to it: early scenes cut between the two preparing their respective voyages, one in comfort and one under pressure to deliver. Tom Hanks’ Captain Phillips is the professional, detail-oriented American charged with seeing a huge container ship safely to its destination. Newcomer Barkhad Abdi, as Muse, is the scrappy Somali, ghting for opportunity in a system ruled by warlords and determined to make a big score by hijacking a Western ship. Both men are clever and resourceful – Phillips sees o the pirates’ rst attempt to board his ship, but Muse too is prepared, and exploits a gap in their defences to devastating e ect. One sails an enormous, high-tech vessel laden with consumer goods. The other uses a rusty launch that looks barely seaworthy to chase after his enormous prey, like ants hunting elephants. Director Greengrass shows his cinéma verité roots (Bloody Sunday ) as clearly as his action movie credentials (The Bourne Supremacy , United 93 ), taking a forensic approach to the hijacking and nding tension in the detail of Captain Phillips’ ordeal. As Phillips is taken hostage and endures tense days in a cramped boat with the increasingly desperate (and still heavily armed) young men, the viewer is right beside him. When one pirate breaks a window on the tiny craft, desperate for air after days at sea, you can feel the salt breeze in the cinema. As Phillips, Tom Hanks has rarely been better. He is perhaps the most straightforwardly heroic lead of any of this year’s nominated lms, innovating and improvising at the point of a gun barrel to spare his crew, help the US Navy as they attempt to rescue him and, in extremis, fashion a last missive to his wife and family. But he is not simply an action man or some sort of warrior. The nal scene, in which a rescued Phillips breaks down and sobs with relief following his rescue, is a portrayal of naked trauma that lingers long after the credits roll. But the lm also shows boundless empathy – although never sympathy – for Abdi’s Muse, too, a gure who is as terrifying as he is terri ed. It’s in his refusal to demonise the aggressors here that Greengrass’ lm nds its power. Paul Greengrass has claimed that the lm is not political, and that’s strictly true. But in highlighting certain realities of the modern world – the long chain of violence that ends with the dirt-poor pirates; the contrast between our luxury goods and the countries that supply them – it’s an intensely powerful lm. The sight of three enormous US warships bearing down on a tiny lifeboat holding four skinny desperados speaks volumes about the relative power of each here. But even as these behemoths loom outside, Phillips still has a gun to his head, and so power remains a complex thing.

Closer than most people are to their own national capitals. But it feels much further than it should. NASA’s moon landings were meant to be the dawn of an epic age of space travel, lunar bases and missions to Mars. It didn’t happen. And Earth’s dreams of galaxies far, far away have faded over the past four decades. In his nal public interview, Neil Armstrong lamented what humanity really lost: the belief that anything is possible. Armstrong, though, died a year too soon to see Gravity ’s bravura 13-minute opening shot, a 375-mile high launch pad from which director Alfonso Cuarón’s spectacular odyssey makes your senses oat with new wonder at both space and cinema. At rst, you’re marvelling at Cuarón and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki’s gamechanging digital accomplishments. Soon, you just… let go. The 3D technology disappears behind an enveloping sensorial experience that sends us into the void like no other lm in history. Never mind whether or not you can ‘hike’ across space with a re extinguisher. Awe trumps accuracy and quite rightly. It’s how Gravity makes you feel that makes it real. When a mid-orbit disaster leaves two spacewalking astronauts – rookie engineer G R A V I T Y 58 Sandra Bullock and star cowboy George Clooney – spinning helplessly away into the big nothing, Cuarón’s camera hauls us in close. We travel through Bullock’s visor. Her face petri es with full-screen fear. Her gulping breaths ll our ears. Then, audaciously, we turn to gawp through her eyes at Gravity’s impossibly poignant backdrop: the endless darkness of space and the gleaming marble of Mother Earth. Micro-plotting their survival saga on the most epic canvas in existence, co-writers Cuarón and his son, Jonás, leave us hanging right here for the rest of the lm – oscillating between contemplation and desperation, astonishment and terror, serenity and anxiety. 59 Not least thanks to recurring maelstroms of lethal space debris from an exploded satellite that decimate everything in their path, death arrives in silence. And in these moments, you forget to breathe. Cosmic metaphors oat easily in this kind of space: a simple story about the human refusal to ever let go of life, even against inevitable, eternal nothingness. Indeed, Bullock’s heavenly body curling into a zero-G foetal position – a simultaneous feat of e ortlessly evocative simplicity and gurn-inducing technical complexity – is a spectacle to sit next to Méliès’ rocket in the moon’s eye and Kubrick’s space stations waltzing to Strauss.

But only one of them – and that includes the Alan Partridge movie – can really claim to be a passion project. It sprang from Coogan reading an article by former spin doctor Martin Sixsmith about helping a retired Irish nurse track down her son, who’d been sold for adoption by nuns 50 years previously. He bought the rights to Sixsmith’s book (before he’d even got a copy), co-wrote a script, wrangled Stephen Frears to direct, Robbie Ryan to shoot, Alexandre Desplat to score and Judi Dench to take the title role (Coogan also co-stars and produces). What fuelled his mission was, in part, moral indignation – against sexual hypocrisy, against institutional complacency and against suspect journalism. It was also that he identi ed a brilliant comedic conceit. 64 Coogan and co-writer Je Pope’s stroke of genius was in shifting Sixsmith’s relationship with Philomena centre stage. On the page, Philomena is sad reportage of mother and son. On screen, it’s reborn as an odd couple road trip as the Oxbridge snit and gentle pensioner rattle round Ireland and America, through red tape and over dead ends, in search of the truth. Dench was 78 at the time of the shoot, but she skips round the obstacle course of comedy and drama without breaking sweat, while Coogan moves to the backseat and donates her the best lines. Theirs is a fantastic winning friction that recalls, if anything, Alec Guinness and Katie Johnson in the twice BAFTA-winning The Ladykillers (1955). BEST FILM NOMINEES Gabrielle Tana, Steve Coogan, Tracey Seaward OTH ER N O M I N ATED CATEGORIES Adapted Screenplay; Leading Actress; Outstanding British Film The man with the plan who thinks he’s smart; the old woman forever benignly scuppering it. What complicates this dynamic further is that, technically, it’s Dench who is the deviant, not the character played by Coogan. It is the sweet geriatric who is accused of “carnal incontinence”, who still hankers after forgiveness for her shame. She is also, in another twist, an unlikely cheerleader for sexual pleasure. Her original roll in the hay (the biblical references include straw, a donkey and a dropped apple) was, she says, “like oating on air… I thought anything that feels so good must be wrong”. Sixsmith – a lapsed Catholic, like Coogan – defends her, spits at religion. But his liberal righteousness is pinpricked by Philomena herself, whose capacity for forgiveness is shown to be not blind faith but clear-eyed pragmatism. It’s confounding. And it’s this that makes the lm so gripping: for something so populist, it’s very unpredictable. Philomena is a lm whose warm embrace by critics and audiences alike isn’t hard to fathom. It doesn’t preach or patronise. It’s bright and sharp on the ethics of storytelling – Martin has qualms about selling his subject to the glossies, as well as about the whole notion of the ‘human interest story’ – but it never gets too meta. The impulse to make Philomena may have arisen from outrage. Yet it’s resolved with a compassion that trips you up scene after scene. You can stand on a soapbox and still honour the pulpit. 65 W E P ROUD LY CON GRAT U LAT E OU R C LIENTS O N T HEIR E E B RI TI SH ACA D E MY FILM AWARDS NO MINAT IO NS A DA P T E D S C R E E N P L AY LEADING ACTOR OU T S TA N DI NG DEBUT BY A BRITISH WRITER Philomena JEFF POPE BRITISH SHORT FILM CHRISTIAN BALE American Hustle Saving Mr. Banks KELLY MARCEL LEADING ACTRESS Orbit Ever After JAMIE STONE C I N E M AT O G R A P H Y AMY ADAMS American Hustle PRODUCTION DESIGN EMMA THOMPSON Saving Mr. Banks The Great Gatsby CATHERINE MARTIN SUPPORTING ACTOR BRUNO DELBONNEL Inside Llewyn Davis ORIGINAL MUSIC HANS ZIMMER COSTUME DESIGN DANIEL BRÜHL Rush 12 Years A Slave CATHERINE MARTIN The Great Gatsby HENRY JACKMAN Captain Phillips MATT DAMON Behind the Candelabra DANIEL ORLANDI Saving Mr. Banks ORIGINAL S C R E E N P L AY DIRECTOR SUPPORTING ACTRESS Nebraska MARTIN SCORSESE The Wolf of Wall Street BOB NELSON OU T S TA N DI NG BRITISH FILM OPRAH WINFREY The Butler E E RI S I NG S TA R WILL POULTER EDITING Philomena JEFF POPE Rush ANDREW EATON Saving Mr. Banks 12 Years A Slave JOE WALKER BEST FILM KELLY MARCEL American Hustle CHARLES ROVEN RICHARD SUCKLE A C A D E M Y F E L L O W S H I P 68 A C A D E M Y F E L L O W S H I P 69 70 DAME HELEN MIRREN ACA D E MY FELLOWSH IP Words by Quentin Falk Opening portrait Film stills Ian Derry Rex Features The Queen (2006) elen Mirren’s rst BAFTA nomination was exactly 30 years ago, for her role as a tragic young Catholic widow in Cal (1984), set during the Irish Troubles of the early 1980s. Ten BAFTA nominations and four wins on – including three on the spin for her feisty, acerbic DCI Jane Tennison in ITV’s Prime Suspect – Mirren, now Dame Helen, has become a national treasure. If the “rough, messed up” (her words) Scotland Yard cop rst de ned her screen image internationally, then that would change even more spectacularly a decade later when she gained even greater global popularity, kudos and many more awards playing our reigning monarch on the big screen in The Queen (2006). It’s clear, however, that the award this year of BAFTA’s prestigious Fellowship – she’s only the 10th woman in the Academy’s entire history to receive it – has an extra special meaning for her. “I think,” she mused, “we all know that winning awards for performance is a bit of a questionable process. The rst thing you tend to feel when you win an award is guilt because you know how the other people who are up for it feel as you’ve been there yourself. This is very di erent, a recognition, hopefully, of a body of work, a lifetime of a certain attitude and approach to work. That’s how I see it. It’s not, for a change, about being the ‘best’ of anything, as it were, and I really like that.” And, she laughed, “it really has been a lifetime, rather terrifying to realise that,” before re ecting more closely on a remarkable stage and screen career across almost half a century, which rst sprang to life from the mid-1960s when she became a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, taking on over the succeeding years some great classical and contemporary roles. “My overriding ambition from a young age,” recalled the London-born daughter of AngloRussian parentage, “was to be in the theatre. I was so caught up in the romantic fantasy of those great actresses of the late 19th century, like Eleonora Duse and Sarah Bernhardt. They were part of my romantic vision. Above all, I wanted to be a great classical theatre actress, and that’s what I worked towards from the very start.” 71 Red 2 (2013) Caligula (1979) “The Fellowship is recognition of a lifetime of a certain attitude and approach to work. It really has been a lifetime, rather terrifying to realise that.” 72 A C A D E M Y F E L L O W S H I P The Long Good Friday (1980) The Last Station (2009) Her progress towards the big screen was an altogether more halting a air – “a slow burn”, she describes it – beginning as an uncredited extra when barely out of her teens, painting Laurence Harvey’s toenails in the 1966 Cold War comedy, The Spy With A Cold Nose (the spy in question being a pedigree bulldog with a listening bug grafted inside its stomach). “I didn’t really go to the cinema very much when I was young, and I suppose the only kind of lm actress I would have wanted to be then was one of the European greats, like Anna Magnani, Jeanne Moreau, Monica Vitti or, my father’s particular favourite, Simone Signoret.” After a brief, early urry of lm – Michael Powell’s Age Of Consent (1969) in which she was bravely, and memorably, naked on the Great Barrier Reef, Ken Russell’s Savage Messiah (1972) and O Lucky Man! (1973), for Lindsay Anderson – it would be a number of years before the cinema properly beckoned again. Mirren was almost in her mid-30s by the time she played, to great acclaim, Bob Hoskins’ upper-crust gangster moll in The Long Good Friday (1980). The Official Chocolatier to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts hotelchocolat.com PHOTOGRAPH BY Andrew Montgomery “I came to The Long Good Friday with my arrogance, and ignorance of the medium, well in place. However, I still felt very insecure about lm.” “I came into that with my arrogance, and ignorance of the medium, still well in place, blithely re-writing the script which was, I think, ultimately to the advantage of the lm,” she says. “However, I still felt very insecure about lm. When I was young, the lm set was an incredibly masculine place in what was still a very sexist world. For a woman walking on to sets then, it was a very lonely business and you had somehow to negotiate your way through it. I really didn’t know what I was doing,” Just a handful of years after that, she was reported, rather sensationally, and still con rms it today, as believing she’d somehow “lost” her “talent” while making Cal in Ireland. “I really felt I was all at sea,” she says. “It was frightenedrabbit-in-the-headlights type of acting. I nally realised how ignorant I was about the whole thing and that I must start learning much more about the process, as it’s such a wonderful and powerful form of storytelling.” The breakthrough – that eureka moment – came, she explained, “doing Prime Suspect . It was pretty late by then, I was already into my 40s. But the experience of doing so many hours of work, with so many good directors, meant I could nally walk on those sets with a proper kind of authority.” There were six Prime Suspect miniseries spanning 12 years, concluding nally in 2003 – the same year she became a Dame in the Queen’s Birthday Honours – with Tennison, having risen to the dizzy heights of detective superintendent, perched on the edge of retirement.

The recipient of this year’s BAFTA for Outstanding British Contribution To Cinema has always been a forthright, singular artist, a Welsh-born iconoclast known for his painterly cinematic style and penchant for pushing boundaries. Indeed, his to-the-point analysis of all of us re ects his ongoing fascination with sex and death – the twin forces of Eros The Draughtsman’s Contract (1982) and Thanatos from Greek mythology – that permeates his work. Even a cursory familiarity with his lms – with the prime example being The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover (1989) – exposes Greenaway’s examination of what he refers to as the very beginning and the very end. “We’re all extremely, deeply fascinated – whether you’re a nun or a serial killer – with these issues,” he explains. “A novelist like Balzac might have said that money was important, but money’s only there to manipulate the sex and the death anyway. You could say that Shakespeare’s plays are about power, but that power is circulating around notions of beginnings and ends, starts and nishes.” Going back to his own start, Greenaway hails from Newport in Gwent, and began his artistic life as a painter before branching out into lm in 1966, making his striking debut, The Falls, in 1980, followed by his rst traditional narrative feature, The Draughtsman’s Contract, in 1982. What followed was a run of richly creative, visually arresting and thematically challenging lms that, he says, “push the edges”, from A Zed & Two Noughts (1985) and The Belly Of An Architect (1987) through to Nightwatching (2007) and Goltzius And The Pelican Company (2012). Plenty of sex and death is explored to be sure. “Somebody once asked me, ‘Why, Mr Greenaway, did you move from painting to cinema?’ and rather cheekily I said, ‘Paintings don’t have soundtracks,’” he laughs. “That’s a simpli cation because cinema has so many elements, but it’s basically true. I was often criticised in England for being far too concerned with form and not content, but for a long time the French have said there’s no such thing as content anymore – the language is the content. I always have this eye for the emotion of the pictorial image and try very, very hard to use all the contemporary gizmos I can – there’s practically a new one every afternoon now – to expand lmmaking language.” Receiving an award like the Academy’s Outstanding British Contribution To Cinema can be misconceived as the bell tolling at the end of a career – or even a life, given Greenaway’s obsessions – and this immediately occurred to him upon hearing about the award. 83 The Pillow Book (1996) “I always have this eye for the emotion of the pictorial image and try very hard to expand lmmaking language.” O U T S T A N D I N G B R I T I S H 84 C O N T R I B U T I O N The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover (1989) Goltzius And The Pelican Company (2012) T O “Didn’t David Hockney say that if you’re English and you can still boil an egg when you’re 70, they’ll give you a medal?” he says, wryly. “But it sounds rather grand. I was a little surprised. I’m a bit of an outsider as a lmmaker. I haven’t lived in England now for about 20 years. I live in Amsterdam and I feel like a European now. I’m at an age that my next great adventure must be death, though the last three lms I’ve made are not inherently about that, they’re more about notions of immortality through art. Although, if you seek immortality, you shouldn’t be a lmmaker. Cinema is very ephemeral, it needs so much technology to reproduce it. The rst 30 years of cinema was silent and who watches silent cinema anymore?” So how does he feel he’ll be remembered for his work? “Journalists have often said that you’re only allowed to make three good lms,” he smiles. “I hope I have a bit more time to make those good three lms, but that’s probably not true anymore. So I think my reputation will probably be associated with The Draughtman’s Contract, The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, And Her Lover, and The Pillow Book. But I have made 15 lms and we’re working on the 16th now. Cinema’s a lottery – you can have a great script, great actors, everything you need; put it in the oven; take it out and…” A lot of Greenway’s recent output has been outside of conventional cinema, including exhibition and installations in Venice’s Palazzo Fortuny, Barcelona’s John Miro Gallery and the Louvre in Paris, and he believes this re ects the changing nature of how we consume and create images.

I hope I have a bit more time to make those three good lms.” “Our ability now to make and manipulate images is much more profound,” he says. “I don’t think it belongs in dark cinemas anymore. Man’s not a nocturnal animal. The developments outside of cinema are far more exciting than those in it. If you think, as many do, that cinema is the seventh art – that comes with a responsibility. Most lms stay within the aegis of simply being a lm. But we’re moving into new ground now – our grandchildren will say, ‘Cinema? What on earth was that?’” Greenaway is, as he says, “busier than I’ve ever been,” and it’s not coming from established cinema either. “It’s from institutions all over the world that view the moving image as an extraordinary tool,” he explains. “There are certain freedoms and opportunities – multiple screens, technology associated with the theatre and opera house – that I’m making use of. We’re producing a lot more entertaining, exciting and cutting edge work than when I was associated with orthodox cinema.” But that doesn’t mean Greenaway has left cinema behind – if anything he’s looking back at its past through the prism of modern technology. He has three new lms planned, including his current project, which he’s working on in Mexico. This lm is about the pioneering Russian director and lm theorist Sergei Eisenstein, which he describes as being “about understanding the end, understanding notions of mortality. I’ve put my own doubts in Eisenstein’s mind, with a certain sense of circumspection and an amount of arrogance.” B R I T I S H 86 C O N T R I B U T I O N T O C I N E M A freuds is proud to be entering its seventeenth year as the retained agency for the EE British Academy Film Awards.

Indeed, he describes him as “one of the few visionary minds in the whole history of cinema,” adding, “Cinema is dying, so maybe now is the time to celebrate its greatest exponent.” Greenaway is very clear that he means the death of “cinema”, not the death of visual storytelling – far from it. He simply believes that the moving image cannot and should not be constrained by the format. “There’s only one good seat in a cinema and it’s where the pictures were taken,” he explains. “When I watch, I don’t want to be interrupted by somebody else, I don’t want to share an emotional involvement with anybody else. I want to make direct contact with the imagination of the lmmaker. I want to come to a lm with as much enthusiasm, excitement and openness as I can. I want to learn something, to have a sensual, emotional and intellectual experience in a way that I have always assumed that serious lmmakers would want me to.” At 71 years old, Greenaway wants you to engage with his work in that intense way and he’ll keep pushing the boundaries of how we consume the moving image to do it. His contribution to cinema is far from over. IN MEMORIAM The following pages honour the esteemed contribution to the lm industry by those individuals who have sadly died in the last 12 months.

The culmination of weeks of trialling and tastetesting, the Film Awards meal was created by a triumvirate of talented chefs: Nigel Boschetti, executive chef at Grosvenor House Hotel; Anton Manganaro, head chef at BAFTA 195 Piccadilly; and Jon Bentham, executive chef at Hotel Chocolat. Together they have crafted a perfectly balanced and original menu, with a speci c British (and BAFTA) avour. “The inspiration came from a desire to use seasonal produce,” explains Boschetti. “We like to source as locally as possible. That can mean using cheeses from Somerset or the north of England, it doesn’t necessarily mean from London. We do like to use good quality British produce.” Manganaro adds: “Nigel was the main driver behind the dinner menu, I just tweaked it a little. For instance, I swapped wasabi in the starter for British horseradish. That’s my focus at BAFTA. It is the British Academy after all. We have some great suppliers and you’ll see that coming out in the canapés I created for the Champagne Taittinger reception at the Royal Opera House. I like using British ingredients quite simply because you don’t have to mess about with them – the avours are so good if you choose the right ingredients.” For chocoholics, tonight’s dessert should have you salivating long before it arrives at the table. Created by Chef Bentham speci cally for this event, the pudding utilises cacao beer, St Lucian milk chocolate, praline and caramel. As Bentham says, it should deliver “the wow factor. It’s all about the avour. We’ve also featured a BAFTA mask on the dessert, which we’ve sprayed gold. I think this is a nice touch, and it certainly epitomises BAFTA.” Naturally, preparing the whole meal is a massive operation, with more than 36 chefs used throughout the day of the Awards to feed the expected 2,000 guests. This would be a daunting proposition for even the most experienced chefs, but for Boschetti, Manganaro and Bentham, it’s all in a day’s work. As Boschetti says: “If we’ve done our job properly, then there’s no need to be nervous.” Bon appétit!
