The Imitation Game costume designer set to show Leeds how to dress for BAFTA success
Sammy Sheldon Differ will be speaking at the University’s Rose Bowl in Lecture Theatre B on Saturday 28 February from 2pm – 3.30pm. The event will consist of a discussion between a BAFTA host and Sammy, followed by questions from the audience. Following the masterclass, there will be an opportunity to network. Tickets are free, though a full refundable deposit of £5 is required when reserving seats.
Jennifer Granville, the organiser of the event for the Northern Film School at Leeds Beckett University, said: “We are honoured and excited to be working in partnership with BAFTA on this masterclass event which will benefit our students, graduates and professional practitioners from the city of Leeds and surrounding areas. The afternoon promises to be both engaging and rewarding for attendees who will gain an insight into the working practice of one of the UK’s leading costume designers, Sammy Sheldon Differ. In addition, the masterclass will be followed by a networking event for a select number of Leeds Beckett University students and BAFTA members.”
