Academy Films

The British Arrows serves as a constant reminder of the importance of British creativity and excellence in advertising, honouring the best in the business. It’s the only award show that places equal importance on the contributions from both the agency and production company. It is, without a doubt, the most popular and well attended advertising awards show in the year’s calendar.

Lizie set up Academy some 25 years ago and it is now a world-renowned production company creating commercials, music videos, short films and digital content with its 48 strong roster of directors.

Academy has picked up all of the industry’s biggest awards along the way, including 45 Cannes Lions, 4 D&AD Black Pencils, 150 British Arrows awards and has been awarded Production Company of The Year by the British Arrows, Campaign Magazine and Televisual.

Lizie has developed a reputation for spotting new directors and nurturing the young talent that have evolved into the great names in today’s advertising.
