“I’m mo­ti­vated by open­ing doors for young peo­ple”

THE FILM PI­O­NEER

Woman & Home - - Amazing Women Awards -

✢ Amanda Nevill CBE, 61, set up the BFI Film Acad­emy, which has given bur­saries and train­ing to over 5,000 young peo­ple who want a ca­reer in film. Amanda won the So­cial Pur­pose Award in the Veuve Clic­quot Busi­ness Woman Awards.

Amanda says: “Ta­lent is ev­ery­where but op­por­tu­nity isn’t, so I’m proud that we’ve cre­ated a new path­way. I’m mo­ti­vated by open­ing doors for young peo­ple who dream about en­ter­ing this mag­i­cal in­dus­try. I don’t have a cre­ative bone in my body, so a job that helps oth­ers fol­low their cre­ative call­ing is a huge priv­i­lege and joy.”
