COVID-19 Resources

6 March 2020

We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our BAFTA programs and activity here in the US. In light of the pandemic we made the difficult decision to pause our screening and in-person event programming until further notice in both Los Angeles and New York.

The wellbeing of our event attendees and program participants remains a top priority, and as we are a small team, we want to ensure we are still able to support our members and community.

While we may not be getting together in person at events for the time being, we hope you will join us and continue to support BAFTA in other ways:

Watch films and Q&As from BAFTA's official screening programme.
Participate in professional development events and panels.
Support BAFTA's new talent programme by participating in online events as an industry expert.

We will keep in touch with our members and friends with further updates and will continue to monitor the situation closely.  We look forward to resuming our in-person event programming as soon as we are able.
