In partnership with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), the British Council is proud to present the 2022 edition of the BAFTA Shorts, a programme dedicated to promoting the best British short films. The UK has a long tradition of short film production and both the British Council and BAFTA are aware of the importance of seeking new audiences to support the diversity and talent of British filmmakers.
The BAFTA SHORTS 2022 programme includes the eight shorts (three of them animated) that competed in the categories of Best British Short Film and Best British Animated Short Film. On this occasion, the 2022 Best British Short Film Award went to the docu-drama The Black Cop, while the Best British Animated Short Film Award went to Do Not Feed the Pigeons.
The BAFTA Shorts 2022 will be screened at the Ponferrada International Film Festival on Friday, September 30. More information here
The total length of the eight shorts (subtitled in Spanish) is 148 minutes. Not suitable for under 16 year-olds.
