BAFTA confirms the timeline for the 2024 BAFTA Film Awards, with the ceremony to be held on Sunday 18th February. The BAFTA Film Awards brings together British and international talent to celebrate the very best of film over the past year, and the filmmakers, cast and crews who bring them to life on both sides of the camera.
First held in 1949, the BAFTA Film Awards have grown to become one of the biggest events in the global film calendar. 2024 will mark the arts charity’s 75th awards dedicated to film. The 2023 edition was watched by a peak of 3.8 million people nationally via BBC One – the show’s highest ratings since 2019, and over nine million views of BAFTA social content from the night, alongside broadcasting internationally.
Voting takes place over three rounds: Longlisting, Nominations and Winners, by the academy’s global voting film membership – comprising over 7,500 industry creatives. The organisation’s latest membership survey data can be found here.
BAFTA’s eligibility criteria, voting and campaigning rules are annually assessed to ensure they are robust, fair and evolve alongside the ever-changing industry landscape.
