The Longlist for the Orange British Academy Film Awards in 2011 has been released.
The Longlist is the result of Round One voting by members of the Academy.* With 207 films entered this year, the first round of voting reduces the list of eligible films to fifteen in each category . Round Two voting, which opens today, will reduce these fifteen contenders down to the five nominations in each category**. Appearing on the longlist does not constitute a nomination.
The asterisks denote the top five selection of the relevant Chapter***. Over 6300 members of the Academy vote in three rounds to decide the Longlist, Nominations and Winners. All members vote in the first two rounds. In the final round, winners are voted for by specialist Chapters n all categories except for Best Film, the four performance categories and Film Not in the English Language, which are voted for by all members.
