The 5th Annual Lovie Awards

Join fellow Gold, Silver, Bronze and People’s Lovie Winners, Special Achievement Honourees, Jury members and other special invited guests and luminaries at the invite-only 5th Annual Lovie Awards event at the BFI Southbank in London, on Thursday 12th November 2015.

This event brings together Europe’s brightest and most creative minds in tech to meet, mingle and celebrate over passed hors d’oeuvres, food and open bar, for an unforgettable night.

This year’s Winners will be recognised alongside Special Achievement honorees including Tom Fletcher, Louis Pouzin, Lily Cole, The European Space Agency, David Sandberg – and more.

Host of the Show: Mark Dolan from BBC Channel 4

British comedian Mark Dolan returns to host The 5th Annual Lovie Awards. Known for his appearances on “If Katie Hopkins Ruled the World”, Channel 4’s ‘Balls of Steel’ and ‘The World’s…And Me’ series, his job will once again be to entertain the crowd and hold winners to the Lovie tradition of using the word “love” in their Declaration of Lovie acceptance speeches.




The British Film Institute Southbank is the leading repertory cinema in the UK with four theatres showing 2,000 classic and contemporary films each year. The venue boasts river views in the heart of London’s cultural complex, situated at the Southern end of Waterloo Bridge.

The 5th Annual Lovie Awards presentation ceremony will be held in The BFI’s largest theatre, NFT1. Grab a cocktail upon arrival and head into the theatre for the show, followed by food, drinks, dancing and celebrating into the wee hours.


Official After Party: Food, Drinks, Music and More

Your ticket gets you into the entire Lovie Awards celebration, starting with pre-show drinks and snacks at 19:30, your seated spot in the theatre for our Awards presentation of the evening at 19:50, and followed by our Official After Party in The BFI’s Riverfront café, with food, an open bar, a custom photobooth, and music by DJ Shepdog of NiceUp Records to take us through the night.

Record Your Declaration of Lovie Speech

All winners in attendance at The Lovie Awards will record a “Declaration of Lovie” video acceptance speech to commemorate their win. This is a brief speech in your native language that must include the word “Love.” Detailed instructions about recording your speech at The BFI will follow once you’ve secured your tickets. You can watch last year’s speeches here for inspiration!
