On Monday, July 1, 2019, BAFTA New York hosted, for the first time, a screening of the 9 Student Film Awards finalist films for voting consideration, followed by a reception.
The 2019 BAFTA Student Film Awards presented by Global Student Accommodation is one of the cornerstones of BAFTA’s global New Talent programming. The finalists came from film schools in the UK, Poland, Czech Republic and Norway, as well as the USA and are divided equally between Animation, Documentary and Live Action films.
BAFTA members and friends joined us for the event, while Full Members were able to cast their votes in-person for the finalists’ films. The evening was introduced by award-winning director, Rachel Lears.
