Event description

Description

Tyrone D Murphy is an award-winning filmmaker, a former investigator and surveillance specialist who have been investigating festivals and awards since 2011. He served on the BAFTA committee for two years and won a libel action as a litigant in person instigated against him by the famous Groucho Club.



He is the founder of the Universal Film & Festival Organization, and he will be talking about the corruption that has blighted the industry. He is currently writing a book on the corruption he investigated within the entertainment industry. The book, "The Truth Behind The Mask" will no doubt change the industry for many years to come as people will simply have the knowledge to force change.

Murphy founded the Universal Film & Festival Organization (UFFO) in 2011 to combat fraudulent festivals. It has since its inception created a festival code of practice for film festivals which was dubbed "FEST-COP" UFFO has 240 film festival members and been actively investigating the corrupt practices at some of the biggest and most respected organisations in the world and also the smaller festivals and the one man band operations.

UFFO has been compiling data on fraudulent and dubious film awards, film festivals, media clubs, and many other entertainment industry organisations from all over the world.

Many of these organisations have been up to all sorts such as selling awards, scamming festival grants, festivals going bankrupt many time over many years with literally hundreds of creditors being shafted time and again, including charities.

Some have been stealing staff pensions while others have been giving awards to friends and in some cases to themselves. There are major industry charitable organisations touting their own award tickets with a face price of 500 and being sold on for 7500. The book also demonstrates one of the industries leading awards events agreed to sell award tickets via one of their ticket touts to one of the world's most wanted terrorists.

Many productions have scammed filmmakers, writers and actors over many years, never paying anyone. Others have set up phoney companies to scam tax and some scamming the VAT system in the UK.

Some awards events have fixed Committee elections, fraudulent award voting and jury tampering. Other issues such as child pornography, rape, illegal surveillance and bugging operations have been exposed within other organisations including the illegal bugging operation exposed at Goldcrest.

We explore the Oscars selection process and how easy it is for a film festival to get Oscar qualifying status with phoney figures. Something the Academy has ignored since being informed by us.

The Famous Groucho club will also get a mention, and there is a details account of the Libel action they took against Tyrone D Murphy which they lost in the most embarrassing way and the explosive revelations that followed the case.

He will also be talking about his time on the BAFTA Committee and how he exposed fake awards, blocking awards for political reasons, the complete corruption of the constitutions rule book and fraudulent committee elections. He will demonstrate how to become a BAFTA committee member with ease and how easily it has been to scam a BAFTA award and how people got away with scamming awards despite being exposed.

These issues recently led to members call for a vote of no confidence in the current management and trustees of the BAFTA Charity. This book will be reaching out to BAFTA members worldwide to inform them of the activity at BAFTA and to inform them of the vote of no confidence.

The cost of the ticket will go to supporting the Universal Film & Festival Organisation - www.uffo.orr
