British Film Institute honors Scott

Filmmaker awarded fellowship

LONDON — Ridley Scott has been awarded a fellowship by the British Film Institute.

The helmer is the 62nd recipient of the award. Previous fellows include Clint Eastwood and David Lean.

First established in 1983, the BFI’s fellowships are awarded in recognition of the outstanding achievement of those who have helped shape film and television culture in the U.K.

Scott, prepping his version of Robin Hood with Russell Crowe, began his career as a set designer in the 1960s before making his feature directing debut in 1977 with “The Duellists.”
