BAFTA is the leading independent charity supporting, developing and promoting the art forms of the moving image in the UK - from Film and Television to Videogames and Interactive Media.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts supports, develops and promotes the art forms of the moving image, by identifying and rewarding excellence, inspiring practitioners and benefiting the public.
With an expert industry membership of nearly 6500 individuals, globally, we focus attention on the highest achievements of films, videogames and television programmes shown in the UK each year in order to motivate and inspire those who make them, and to educate and develop the taste of those who watch them.
The promotion of excellence extends far beyond our Awards ceremonies. As a charitable organisation, the Academy plays an equally powerful role at our headquarters at 195 Piccadilly, across our nations and regions, in cinemas, schools and communities in the UK and US.
Giving our members, the industry and the public the opportunity to learn first-hand from leading practitioners is one of the key services the Academy provides. By showcasing the crafts of film, television and videogames production, we provide a forum for knowledge to be shared across disciplines, which in turn stimulates higher standards across the board.
