The British Academy Film awards hosted by BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) which was founded in 1947 as The British Film Academy. In 1958, the Academy merged with The Guild of Television Producers and Directors to form The Society of Film andTelevision, which eventually became The British Academy of Film and Television Arts in 1976. In addition to high profile awards ceremonies BAFTA runs a year-round programme of
