British Academy sets awards date

Awards ceremony set for Feb. 21

LONDON — The date for next year’s British Academy of Film and TV Arts awards has been set as Feb. 21.

The awards shifted to later in the month after the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences moved the Oscars back to March 7.

The later date for the Baftas also means that the ceremony will not fall during the first weekend of the Berlin Film Festival, as it has done for the previous few years.

The awards show does, however, now clash with Berlinale’s closing night on Feb. 21.
