The British Academy Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) today announced the shortlisted films in the Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director, or Producer category.

This award was established to encourage British filmmaking by recognising individuals in the selected disciplines whose first film sets them apart as a talent with a distinct vision and potential. It was previously presented as the Carl Foreman Award for Special Achievement by a British Writer, Director or Producer in their First Feature Film.

Marc Samuelson, Chair of BAFTA’s Film Committee said: “New talent is the lifeblood of the British film industry. This shortlist of ten films shines a light on a diverse group of talented debut British filmmakers who demonstrate that the future of British film is in good hands.”



The shortlist for the two other BAFTA jury categories – British Short Film and British Short Animation – will be announced Tuesday 10 December 2019.

Nominations for all categories will be announced on Tuesday 7 January 2020, with the EE Rising Star nominations announced the previous day, Monday 6 January.
