Film Gala

BAFTA's annual Film Gala raises funds to support our belief that everyone with talent regardless of background deserves the chance to shine.

The money raised at the Gala enables us to help a wealth of new and emerging talent breakthrough into the film, television and games industries and support the very best creative work. For the last 3 years the Film Gala has been generously sponsored by Cushman and Wakefield and EMI Capital.
