ColinColin Young: In 1964, Colin established the first Department of Visual Anthropology at UCLA where he motivated some outstanding filmmakers to explore the boundaries of observational filmmaking. In 1970 Colin was invited to found a national film school in the UK – the NFTS which he directed from 1970 till 1992, continuing to motivate filmmakers to break boundaries, and confirming his reputation as the godfather of observational filmmaking. He then founded Ateliers du Cinéma Européen which he ran until 1996. He is a BAFTA Fellow and a governor of the NFTS.
