VOTING, CHAPTERS AND JURIES
The EE BAFTA Film Awards voting takes place over three rounds: Longlisting, Nominations and Winners, by BAFTA’s global voting membership, comprising over 7,500 creatives and film industry practitioners. The latest demographic information on BAFTA’s membership is available here.
The Longlisting round was introduced in 2021 to showcase more films and the people that bring them to life at an earlier stage in the Awards process. To ensure a level playing field and fair consideration for all titles, regardless of marketing budget, all film voting members are allocated a randomly selected sample of 15 films before voting in Round One.
- Round One voting (from 8 December to 29 December 2023) determined the Longlists announced today.
- Round Two voting (which opens today, 5 January until Friday 12 January) will determine the Nominations, which will be announced on 18 January.
- Categories in Rounds One and Two are voted for by the corresponding Chapters or Juries made up of BAFTA members, except for Best Film which is voted for by the full film voting BAFTA membership.
- Round Three voting (from Friday 19 January until Tuesday 13 February) will determine the Winners, to be announced at the EE BAFTA Film Awards on Sunday 18 February. Round Three is voted for by the corresponding Chapters or Juries made up of BAFTA members, and by the full film voting BAFTA membership. Please refer to the table below for details.
- The EE Rising Star Award is the only award voted for by the public. EE will unveil the Nominees on 10 January 2024 and the winner will be announced at the ceremony.
Chapters are made up of BAFTA members who hold specialist knowledge in the relevant craft. Members are invited to join up to three Opt-in Chapters.
Juries are comprised of BAFTA members with varied industry roles and experience and from diverse backgrounds, gender, location and age groups.
Before voting in Round Two it is compulsory for all voters, including those in chapters and juries, to watch all Longlisted films in their Chapter categories.
BAFTA encourages voters to watch as many films as possible at the cinema, and in addition makes all qualifying films available to voting members to watch on BAFTA View, BAFTA’s online viewing platform.
