Angela Allen was this year’s recipient of the Michael Balcon Award for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema. The Award has been given since 1978 in memory of one of the founder members of the British Academy.

Since forming a highly successful working relationship with Franco Zeffirelli, her work has included Tea with Mussolini, Jane Eyre and the recent Callas Forever.

The Awards were hosted for the fifth time by Stephen Fry and took place on Saturday 12th February at the Odeon, Leicester Square. They were produced by Initial (part of Endemol UK) and broadcast on BBC ONE the same evening.
