BAFTA New York

BAFTA in New York is a nonprofit membership organization providing a lively environment in which film and television professionals in New York can meet and exchange information and ideas about their sister industries in the UK. Originally launched in February 1996 as BAFTA East Coast, the organization continues the British Academy’s tradition of excellence by recognizing and promoting the achievements of the British film and television industry in New York and throughout the Eastern United States. An extensive roster of feature film, television, and documentary screenings, panel discussions, premieres, and co-produced events with other established organizations in the film and television industry have propelled BAFTA in New York through over a decade of increasingly ambitious activities including an annual Film Awards viewing party with a live satellite feed from London to New York.
