BAFTA today confirms the 2025 BAFTA Film Awards will be held on Sunday 16 February 2025.

The BAFTA Film Awards brings together British and international talent to celebrate the very best of film over the past year, and the filmmakers, cast and crews who bring them to life on both sides of the camera.

First held in 1949, the BAFTA Film Awards have grown to become one of the biggest events in the global film calendar. The 2024 BAFTA Film Awards were watched by 3.8 million people on BBC One (3.8m peak/3m average), the highest overnight viewing figures since 2020. On the night, there were also 20.6m video views of ceremony highlights on BAFTA’s social media platforms.

Voting takes place over three rounds: Longlisting, Nominations and Winners, by the academy’s global voting film membership – comprising over 7,800 industry creatives. The organisation’s latest membership survey data can be found here.

BAFTA’s eligibility criteria, voting and campaigning rules are annually assessed to ensure they are robust, fair and evolve alongside the ever-changing industry landscape. The full timeline and eligibility details for the 2025 BAFTA Film Awards will be announced in due course.
