BAFTA and Shorts
The Academy recognises that it is essential to reward and nurture the immense diversity and talent demonstrated by filmmakers producing short film and animation. Shorts offer both new and established talent alike the chance to create experimental and innovative films and, by rewarding excellence within these fields, BAFTA aims to raise the profile of these talented individuals and of shorts in general. The best film in each category receives a BAFTA Award, presented at the EE British Academy Film Awards ceremony.
