Newport Beach Film Festival joined forces in 2017 with Variety for their third annual UK Honours event hosted at the luxurious Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge. We were asked to produce a glamourous and stylish award ceremony which both drew on the art deco interiors of the venue and the Californian beaches of the festival itself.
With a six week lead time we provided full event production for the award show, which was attended by over 120 high profile guests from the world of film. Amongst many other elements we installed a LED screen, a red carpet and floral styling and produced a drinks reception for the relaxed and stylish event.
British icons Charles Dance and Miranda Richardson, and photographer David Bailey were honoured on the night for having “built revolutionary careers with a lifetime of extraordinary contributions to their craft”. I, Daniel Blake, Ken Loach’s searing look at the UK’s welfare state, won the award for Outstanding Achievement In Film.
