Bristol-based indie, Icon Films, receive 3 nominations for the RTS West 2018 Awards

Published on Tuesday, 27th February 2018

Icon Films’ 2017 productions, Andrew Marr: My Brain and Mar (BBC) and the Sky Passions feature, Philip Larkin by Andrew Motion (Sky Arts) were nominated in the On-Screen Talent and Documentary Programme or Series categories. Both programmes’ presenters – Andrew Marr and Sir Andrew Motion – were listed as nominees of the On-Screen Talent award, seeing the Sky Passions feature on Larkin secure Icon Films’ third nomination.

The doubly nominated Philip Larkin by Andrew Motion - Icon Films’ first commission for Sky Arts - follows Andrew Motion, a close friend of Larkin, as he revisits the great poet’s life and work and his relationship to the city he called home: Hull.

Icon Films reaped success at the RTS West 2014 Awards with their film Africa’s Giant Killers coming out top in the Natural History category.

The RTS West 2018 Awards Ceremony will be held at Bristol Old Vic on Sunday 11th March.
