About Michael Fuller
Each year in SFW: Shorts the Best Film (as voted by a panel of independent judges) is
awarded the Michael Fuller Award. Michael was a supporter and advocate for City Eye throughout its history and whilst he was Arts Officer at Southampton City Council and then Hampshire County Council.
During his time at SCC, he was also involved in setting up Southampton Film Festival, the forerunner to SFW, which began in the 1980s and continued into the 90s. He remained passionate about film and indeed the cultural welfare of Southampton and the wider region. He was a member and Chair of the Phoenix Film Society. Michael died in December 2011. His support and counsel is missed but we are so pleased that Michael’s wife, Lesley, has approved the creation of this memorial to him.
