The Creativity Capital team would like to congratulate all nominees of the 72nd BAFTA awards.
Of course we are most excited to congratulate the filmmakers behind our own “McQueen”, a double BAFTA nomination for both “Outstanding British Film of the Year and Best Documentary”!
Directed by Ian Bonhote and co-directed and written by Peter Ettedgui, McQueen tells the story of legendary British fashion designer Alexander McQueen’s life and career. Creativity Capital has fully financed and executive produced the film.
The team at Creativity are pleased to see positive reviews of McQueen since it’s release on Friday!
The film received a four star rating from both The Times and The Telegraph.
The Guardian matched this rating and said “the film-makers capture the impact he had on the people around him.”
While The Independent commented “the filmmakers celebrate his prodigious achievements but the sadness is that he never managed to escape the hothouse world of the fashion industry.”
