The Peter Lamont Award
Spotlighting New Talent Award

This award is supported by:

This award has been renamed in honour of Production Designer and BFDG member Peter Lamont, who sadly passed away in December 2020. Peter was always keen to help and support young talent in the Art Department and as this award’s intention is to highlight the future stars of the next generation of filmmakers the BFDG thought it would be a fitting tribute to dedicate this award to him. This year the award is supported by Netflix.

This category will be voted on by the BFDG committee only.
Certificates will also be given to all finalist nominees.

Fran Tesei

Junior Model Maker

Fran has come into the industry from architecture and has in a VERY short time made a huge impact to our art department. Understanding and embracing the model requirements and constantly striving to embrace new technology and techniques.

Mia Fardy

Petty Cash Buyer

Mia is a truly gifted person with a dedication to the Film Industry and Art Department that is inspiring. Mia has worked alongside Kate Venner, Ben Barrington Grove and myself for over four years in her own self created apprenticeship, which over time has demonstrated her passion for Architecture and Interior Design whilst showing her understanding and appreciation of her own craft within the Art Department and Set Decoration. I believe this makes her a worthy candidate to this award as it continues to spotlight the new generation of film makers which she and her exceptional talent are central too.

Sara Ortiz-Cortijo

Art Department Assistant

Sara started on “The Power” as an Art Department Assistant. Although she has several years experience as an Architect, this was her first Film or Television job. Sara has many fine qualities to bring to the Art Department, her drawing skills and her organisation, but her best quality is enthusiasm and dedication to the job, even in the most difficult circumstances. She was always ready to help and she provided an invaluable back up to the art dept. *She has since risen above her original position, but is only on her 2nd job in the industry. She is outstanding.
