The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has introduced a sixth award nomination under the Outstanding British Film category; five of the nominations will be decided by the opt-in British chapter vote, as usual, and the sixth will be decided by a jury of filmmakers. The 2014 BAFTA Film Awards will be held on February 16.
Additionally, the British Short Film and British Short Animation awards are now open to non-fiction films.
The new Rule Book that contains these changes and full instructions on entry is here.
Entry for all feature film categories will open on Monday, September 2, and close on Wednesday, November 13. Entry for British Short Film and British Short Animation will open on Monday, August 12, and close on Wednesday, October 30.
