Phil Grabsky

Phil Grabsky is a BAFTA-winning British documentary filmmaker who has received multiple awards for his directing, writing, producing and cinematography. In 2009, Phil began work on a new arts genre for the cinema: Exhibition on Screen. This brings major art exhibitions – and the intimate biographies of the artists – to cinema, mainstream television and home entertainment platforms worldwide. Exhibition on Screen now plays in 1500 cinemas and 60+ countries worldwide and has produced 36 films on artists including Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent van Gogh, Rembrandt, Hockney, Frida Kahlo, Raphael and many more. The early 2023 release of Vermeer The Greatest Exhibition was an extraordinary success and is the most successful documentary film on an artist ever released in the UK (and worldwide) and in the top 20 of any genre of documentary ever released in the UK. Phil’s most recent film as a director is Hopper – An American Love Story.
