Sutherland Trophy


Sutherland Trophy

Created in 1958, the Sutherland Trophy was awarded annually by the British Film Institute to "the maker of the most original and imaginative [first or second feature] film introduced at the National Film Theatre during the year".[1] In 1997, the criteria changed to honour the maker of the most original and imaginative first feature screened during the London Film Festival.[2]

The award is a sculpture in silver by Gerald Benney. It is presented on the closing night of the Festival. The award was named after the British Film Institute's patron, George Sutherland-Leveson-Gower, 5th Duke of Sutherland.
