Linklater, Fiennes and Kate Kinninmont MBE receive associateships at Annual Show.

Richard Linklater, Ralph Fiennes and Kate Kinninmont MBE were last night [Dec 8] awarded honorary associateships by the London Film School at its Annual Show at the Barbican Centre.

The associateships were presented by the LFS chairman and 1964 graduate, Mike Leigh, and the new LFS director, Jane Roscoe.

Fiennes will follow the tradition of past honorary associates, including Stephen Frears and Samantha Morton, by holding a Q&A session at the school in the new year.

Previous honorary associates include Amma Asante, Ken Loach, Lynne Ramsay and Jim Broadbent.

Leigh said: “We welcome our new honorary associates and, as we head towards our sixtieth anniversary in 2016 and the move to the Barbican in 2017, we thank all the valued supporters and partners joining with us on this exciting journey.”

Films by LFS graduates have accounted for 200 festival entries this year and won 30 prizes across the globe.​
