BAFTA revealed the longlists for the EE British Academy Film Awards in 2022.

BAFTA Film Committee Chair Anna Higgs said: “2021 continued to be a difficult year for so many, including the film industry with cinemas in the UK remaining closed until May last year and shoots continually adapting to restrictions. Throughout the ongoing uncertainty, BAFTA has remained dedicated to making the Awards fairer for entrants, to celebrate excellence, and support a more inclusive industry.

“We are delighted to announce this year’s longlist: such an exciting range of films, different genres and incredible performances being recognized is a real testament to the strength, ingenuity and resilience of our crews, talent and filmmakers.”

BAFTA Chair Krishnendu Majumdar said: “The breadth of films and talent recognized in the longlist announced today shows the enduring creativity and resilience of the film industry against a backdrop of more challenges and uncertainty over the last year. At the same time BAFTA has made considerable changes to our rules and voting processes to level the playing field for all film awards entries and importantly to ensure more titles are watched by more voters. While nothing beats the theatrical experience of watching a film on the big screen, this year all titles have been made available to members on BAFTA View which has seen voters watching more films on average than previous years as well as a significant increase in the number of views of films overall, with over 134,000 streams already before we begin the second round of voting. This is a positive step in our work to promote and enable a more inclusive, accessible and sustainable industry and I’m encouraged by the support of our members in the changes we’ve made and cannot wait to find out the nominations for the EE British Academy Film Awards on 3 February.”

The following films are longlisted for the 2022 EE British Academy Film Awards, listed alphabetically by title, with the exception of the performance categories, listed alphabetically by the surname of the performer, followed by the film title.

The nominations will be announced on Thursday February 3, 2022. The winners will be announced on Sunday March 13, 2022.
