For the Love of Film Competition

14 January 2020

BAFTA's For the Love of Film competition is a nationwide search for people whose passion for film makes them legendary in their communities.

Whether they have renovated an abandoned movie palace, run a mobile film club for rural communities or served popcorn for 30 years at their local cinema, these are the people who go above and beyond purely for their love of film.

Now in its second year, the For the Love of Film competition offers the winners a once-in-a-lifetime evening at the EE British Academy Film Awards, along with dinner and a night's stay at The Savoy Hotel, the full star treatment to get them red carpet ready, and more. 

Discover the For the Love of Film winners below.
