Professor Richard Billingham wins major prizes with his new feature film, ‘Ray and Liz’


Our Professor, Richard Billingham, last year worked on a feature film, that draws on his well known photography work from the 1990s about his parents.

The film, ‘Ray and Liz’, is currently touring film festivals around the world and has already won prizes in several countries. It is due to be released in the UK in January 2019.

This week he won another major award, the IWC Filmmaker Bursary Award (in conjunction with the BFI). This prize was a bursary for £50,000 towards his next project.
