Film Gala

BAFTA's bi-annual Film Gala will be returning in 2021

The BAFTA Film Gala is a magical evening dedicated to raising funds to support our belief that everyone with talent, regardless of background, deserves the chance to shine.

Taking place at the iconic Savoy Hotel on Friday 8 February 2019 and hosted by Claudia Winkleman - with help from our BAFTA Young Presenters - our fourth Film Gala raised £400,000 for our BAFTA Kids Roadshows and Scholarships initiatives. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who attended and everyone who assisted in putting on our largest fundraising event yet.

Guests enjoyed dinner and performances followed by a charity auction, with special guests including Eddie Redmayne, Andy Serkis, Sir Patrick Stewart, Joanna Lumley, Tom Hiddleston and Jeremy Irons.
