Harry Potter director honoured by National Film and Television School Posted: 25/02/2010
On Friday 26 February the National Film and Television School will present Harry Potter film director David Yates with an Honorary Fellowship at its annual graduation ceremony.
The NFTS Fellowship is awarded in recognition of outstanding contribution to the British film and television industry and previous recipients include Lord Attenborough CBE, David Lean CBE, Nick Park CBE and Alan Parker CBE. 
 
David Yates, a graduate of the NFTS, is a multi-BAFTA winning director who began his career in television. After leaving the NFTS, he directed high profile dramas including The Sins, The Way We Live Now and the political thriller State of Play, for which he earned a Directors Guild of Great Britain Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement. Further awards for Sex Traffic and The Girl in the Caf followed before David was offered his highest profile project to date with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The fifth film in the series was a critical and box office success, becoming the 8th best selling film ever worldwide. Yates is currently working on the final two films in the Harry Potter series, having also directed Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, which broke box office records on its release.
 
On being awarded an honorary fellowship, Yates stated: 'I am really proud to be given an NFTS fellowship and to join the impressive group of filmmakers who already hold the honour. The NFTS gave me my first big break by letting me through its doors for which I will always be grateful – and to return home and be acknowledged for the work I've done since graduating is a real treat. Thank you.
Nik Powell, Director of the NFTS stated: 'We are really pleased to have the opportunity to honour one of our most successful graduates at today's Graduation Ceremony. It is a poignant and inspiring moment to have one of our own alumni cheer on the next generation of behind-the-camera talent, even if in typical film fashion, David could only be here on screen due to his current Harry Potter commitments'.
