Margy Kinmonth awarded 2017 Likhachev Foundation Cultural Fellowship

Long-standing WFTV member and Director, Margy Kinmonth (pictured right) has been awarded a prestigious 2017 Likhachev Foundation Cultural Fellowship in Russia.

The Fellowship is for non-Russian professionals working in the field of arts and culture who make projects related to Russian culture and history that are aimed at a broad audience.

Margy Kinmonth is a BAFTA award winning film and television director whose many credits include theatrical features Revolution – New Art for a New World (Foxtrot Films/Arts Alliance), which marked the 1917 Russian Revolution, BAFTA-nominated Hermitage Revealed, and Royal Paintbox with HRH The Prince of Wales. Margy was the recipient of the Creative Originality Award at the 2009 WFTV Awards.

She will use the Fellowship to develop and write the screenplay for her next feature, which is to be filmed later this year.

Congratulations to Margy.
