Circle Film Awards, BFI Southbank, February 10, 2011
A selection of pictures taken at the Critics Circle Film Awards held at the BFI Southbank for the first time in February 2011. The event was in aid of the BFI archive fund which is planning to restore some early Hitchcock silent films. It was a glittering occasion and the first time the wards had been held in their present format outside a West End hotel. One advantage was that the old National Film Theatre frontage allowed the set up of a really impressive red carpet approach so that the star guests were able to make an entrance past the assembled press and television crews.
