Autograph Collection Hotels has announced that the second event in its Behind The Scenes speaker series will explore the craft of film set design.
Led by film critic, Mark Kermode, guests will have the chance to hear from leading British set designers including John Paul Kelly and Michael Carlin, who’ve collectively designed the sets for independent and blockbuster films, including Colette, Stan & Ollie, The Theory of Everything and The Duchess.
Behind The Scenes celebrates individuality, diversity and the art of storytelling within independent film, values that are integral to Autograph Collection and its one-of-a-kind hotels around the world that are handpicked for their unique story.
The Dixon is a natural host for the event as a boutique hotel that honours the colourful heritage of the building it resides in and celebrates local, contemporary art.
Socially and culturally immersive, supporting SE1 art talent is at the heart of the hotel’s ethos with guests benefitting from local partnerships including Anise Gallery.
The series is part of Autograph Collection’s Indie Film Project, a long-term, multi-faceted cultural programme that celebrates film and offers meaningful support to independent filmmakers and their craft across all stages of development – from screenplay to production and distribution.
Behind The Scenes talks will take place in London every quarter throughout 2019 and a limited number of complimentarty tickets are available by emailing RSVPEurope@autographhotels.com.
