More films were entered, making the selection process particularly tough for our voting members. The films and talented people nominated represent some of the most talked about films of the year, the most critically acclaimed, and films yet to be released and discovered by audiences. With a month to go until the EE BAFTAs on 18 February, we encourage film fans everywhere to watch as many nominated films as possible and find out more about the people who make them by listening to our new official podcast, Countdown to the BAFTAs, which is available widely on podcast platforms from today.”
Sara Putt, Chair of BAFTA, said: “BAFTA’s mission is to celebrate best in British and global filmmaking so we are delighted to showcase 38 extraordinary films in this year’s EE BAFTA Film Award 2024 nominations. BAFTA film voters are creatives, practitioners and film experts who represent all corners of the British and global film industry and they have been voting in their thousands having watched more hours of filmmaking than ever before. There are so many talented people both in front of, and behind the camera involved in bringing every BAFTA-nominated film to life and we look forward with excitement to celebrating their skill and creativity at the EE BAFTAs on 18 February.”
Anna Higgs, Chair of BAFTA Film Committee: “It has been an outstanding year for filmmaking as represented by the 38 films nominated today. They showcase ambitious, creative and hugely impressive voices from independent British debuts to global blockbusters. From complex moral issues through to joyful journeys of self-discovery, they all ultimately explore human connection. Which is why we go to the cinema: to be transported into new worlds, to laugh, cry, to be entertained and to be challenged. The films nominated today deliver all that and more – we hope people up and down the country, and around the world, are inspired to watch them. Congratulations to all the nominees.”
