IWC Schaffhausen will be the headline sponsor of this year’s Luminous gala, a spectacular fundraising event organised by the British Film Insitute (BFI).
The luxury Swiss watchmaker has a long-term strategy of aligning itself with the movie industry, and will also be the Official Time Partner for the London Film Festival in October.
Luminous is the kick-off party for the Film Festival, and last year raised over £250,000 for the BFI National Archive.
The event was attended by stars including Jude Law, Sienna Miller, Helen McCrory, Damien Lewis, Julian Fellowes, Michael Gambon and Emilia Fox.
This year’s Luminous takes place on October 6 at London’s Guildhall. It will again raise funds for the BFI National Archive, which houses a world-renowned collection of television and film artefacts.
