British Film Institute picks Rose

Former C4 exec will get the org's Fellowship honor

David Rose, a former exec at the U.K.’s Channel 4, will receive the British Film Institute Fellowship on Tuesday.

Rose, who was responsible for the channel’s new drama output and Film on Four (the channel’s most successful venture in the 1980s), helped revive the British film industry with productions including Stephen Frears’ “My Beautiful Laundrette” and Peter Greenaway’s “The Draughtsman’s Contract.”

Launching his career in the 1960s, Rose worked as a director-producer at the BBC on cult cop series “Z-Cars” and “Softly, Softly” and seminal drama “The Black Stuff.”

He continued advocating filmed drama to great success at C4 with international co-productions including Andrei Tarkovsky’s “The Sacrifice” and Wim Wenders’ “Paris, Texas” while serving as senior commissioning editor.

The BFI Fellowship is awarded to individuals who have given outstanding contribution to film and television culture in Blighty. Previous recipients include Michael Caine, Ridley Scott, Michelangelo Antonioni and John Hurt.
