Understanding BAFTA

The BAFTA (British Academy Film and Television Awards) which holds in London every year has been in existence for more than six decades beginning for the first time in 1947.

Established by Alexander Korda, Carol Reed, Charles Laughton, David Lean, Roger Maxwell among others, it was formely known as British Film Academy. But as time passed and noticeable success was achieved, the organsation was merged with Guild of Television Producers and Directors that was created in 1953. After being fused together in 1958, both film organisations became The Society of Film and Television that year. In 1976, however, the name BAFTA was adopted.

BAFTA recognizes and encourages those who contribute to film in an excellently remarkable way including British and international stars. The main goal of the award is to advance and improve the art forms of the moving image. British Academy of Film and Television Arts achieve this through rewarding brilliance and outstanding performances. The awards are designed by Mitzi Cunliffe an American sculptor and they come in the shape of a theatrical mask. The renowned award has the same value as the Academy Awards.
