Presenting the second of our speakers during the 2018 Photography Show, we’re excited to announce Phil Grabsky from specialist film production company, Exhibition on Screen.

Aside from being a member of team PhotoBite, Phil has won numerous awards for his directing, writing, producing and cinematography.

Phil Grabsky is behind cinema films such as Muhammad Ali – Through the Eyes of the WorldIn Search of Beethoven, In Search of Mozart and The Boy Mir – Ten Years in Afghanistan. These films have played in festivals, cinemas and on TV & DVD worldwide, winning dozens of awards. In cinemas, Phil’s films have been a great success: in Australia, both In Search of Mozart and In Search of Beethoven played in cinemas for months and entered the all-time top-grossing documentaries.

Just occasionally something will crop up that restores your faith in humanity’s future. EXHIBITION ON SCREEN is a global phenomenon’.  EXHIBITION ON SCREEN is now playing in 55 countries and Seventh Art Productions is currently producing films on Cézanne and Picasso.
