Ben Roberts, Director of the BFI Film Fund, said, “It’s really pleasing to see BAFTA spotlight a wide range of British films, from the VFX genius showcased so vividly in Gravity, the visceral and powerful storytelling in 12 Years A Slave, to the heart-wrenching humanity of films like The Selfish Giant and Philomena – in what’s been an outstanding year for British filmmaking, it’s just a shame not everyone can be nominated. The BAFTAs can provide a huge boost for new film talent and it’s fantastic to see bold new voices like Paul Wright and Scott Graham included in the Outstanding Debut category. I’m proud that the BFI Film Fund has supported a number of the nominated films, both features and shorts – it’s been a privilege to work with these prodigiously talented filmmakers, and I wish them and indeed all the nominees the very best of luck for the awards.”  

The British Academy Film Awards take place on February 16.
