The Lord Attenborough Nfts Charitable fund aims to raise £1m ($1.55m) over two years to “enable talented young people to achieve their ambition as successful filmmakers through world class educational experiences”.
It will go towards offering more film-making scholarships to young people from different backgrounds and improving teaching facilities at the Nfts.
The gala dinner, which was hosted by Stephen Fry at Old Billingsgate in London last night (June 11), was introduced by Lord Attenborough’s son, theatre director Michael Attenborough, in place of his father, who was unable to attend.
Michael Attenborough said: “It was thanks to a Leverhulme scholarship to Rada at the age of 17, that my father was able to go on to enjoy a career that included acting in, producing and directing more than 70 Oscar and BAFTA winning »
