BAFTA Adds Sixth Nomination To Outstanding British Film Category

Short categories will include non-fiction films in 2014

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced it is adding a sixth nomination in the Outstanding British Film category to its Film Awards in 2014.

Five of the nominations will be decided by the opt-in British chapter vote and the sixth nomination will be decided by a jury of filmmakers.

The move was revealed on Thursday, when BAFTA published the full rule book for the EE British Academy Film Awards in 2014.

“We are in a unique position to shine a spotlight on the full spectrum of British filmmaking,” said Nik Powell, chairman of BAFTA’s film committee. “By adding a sixth nomination we can ensure that this important category fully celebrates the outstanding range of British films in our cinemas each year.”

Additionally, short categories will open to non-fiction films this year and categories will be renamed British Short Film and British Short Film Animation.

Entries for all feature film categories will open on September 2 and close on November 13.

Entry for British Short Film and British Short Animation will open on August 12 and close October 30.

Next year’s film awards will unspool Sunday February 16.
