BAFTA/LA to host auction fund-raiser

Christie's-run event features 25 donated luxury lots

The British Academy of Film & Television Arts, Los Angeles, will host a live auction Wednesday at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills to raise funds for its film school scholarship, benefiting a British-born student studying cinematic arts at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film & Television.

The Christie’s-run auction, following a canapes-and-champagne reception, features 25 luxury lots donated by BAFTA/LA sponsors Cunard, British Airways, Bombardier, Volvo and Waterford/Wedgwood, among others.

These include a Cunard transatlantic cruise on the Queen Mary II and two first-class L.A.-to-London roundtrip airfares on British Airways.

Past winners of the scholarship, now in its 14th year, include Sacha Gervasi, who wrote Steven Spielberg’s “The Terminal” and the upcoming “Dallas,” and Gil Kenan, who directed “Monster House” for executive producers Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis.

BAFTA/LA also will host an online auction at http://www.ASK4Events.com, which closes midnight Thursday.

Phone 818-906-0240 for auction tickets.

Meanwhile, USC student Adam Parrish King has won BAFTA/LA’s Student Film Awards for his animated short, “The Wraith of Cobble Hill,” a coming-of-age fable set in Brooklyn.

He beat six finalists, whittled down from 30 entrants from Los Angeles County colleges. Thesp Tom Hollander presented Parrish King with a trophy and a one-year membership to BAFTA/LA Thursday at the American Film Institute.
