|Created in 1958, the Sutherland Trophy was awarded annually by the British Film Institute to "the maker of the most original and imaginative [first or second feature] film introduced at the National Film Theatre during the year". In 1997, the criteria changed to honour the maker of the most original and imaginative first feature screened during the London Film Festival. The award is a sculpture in silver by Gerald Benney. It is presented on the closing night of the Festival. The award was named after the British Film Institute's patron, George Sutherland-Leveson-Gower, 5th Duke of Sutherland.|
