Profile image for Geoffrey Scott

Geoffrey Scott

Producer, Manager

Geoffrey Scott, MBE and OBE, oversaw the Government's National Film Unit for over 20 years, until his retirement in 1973. Scott began his film career playing piano over silent movies. During his command of the unit, the organisation won 141 awards.

... he could take pride in having built an environment that allowed young filmmakers, producers and technicians to acquire the skills needed to succeed on their own. Peter Kitchin, in a Dominion Post obituary for Geoffrey Scott.
