The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is a charity that supports and promotes the art forms of moving images. This includes film, television and video games. Originally the British Film Academy and the Guild of Television Producers and Directors were two separate organizations that had their own awards shows. In 1958 they merged and eventually became the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. Now they have several award ceremonies throughout the year known as the BAFTAs. The awards series includes:

  • Game Awards
