BAFTA shifts 2004 fete

Kudocast shift expected after Oscar date moved

LONDON — The British Academy of Film & TV Arts has officially bumped its film awards show forward two weeks to Feb. 8 in 2004.

Decision, which was expected (Daily Variety, July 15), follows this week’s confirmation that the Academy Awards will move to Feb. 29 in 2004.

The British Academy Film Awards used to take place in mid-April, two weeks after the Oscars. But BAFTA moved its ceremony to a late-February slot two years ago to give the event a higher media profile in the heart of the awards season.

The 2004 ceremony was scheduled for Feb. 22, but when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences signaled its intent to move the Oscars, BAFTA realized it needed to respond.
