Our animated short I'M HERE by Julia Orlik has been shortlisted for BAFTA Student Film Awards 2020.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced the shortlist for the 2020 GSA BAFTA Student Film Awards.

This year’s shortlisted films have been selected from the 691 submissions made by students at film schools in 35 countries across the world. Film schools were invited to submit films for consideration for four top prizes – the BAFTA Student Film Award for Animation, the BAFTA Student Film Award for Documentary, the BAFTA Student Film Award for Live Action Film, and the Special Jury Prize. A selection panel of over 140 BAFTA members and participants of some of our new talent programs viewed and rated each of the submissions and the BAFTA Los Angeles Learning & New Talent Committee selected the shortlist based on those ratings.

A panel of BAFTA members will review the films on the shortlist and three finalists, each in the categories of Live Action, Documentary, and Animation, will be announced on June 16.

BAFTA and Global Student Accommodation (GSA) will also award a USD 12,000 commissioning grant to student projects on the topic of wellbeing. Those eligible for the grant include those shortlisted for the GSA BAFTA Student Film Awards, as well as participants of some of BAFTA's New Talent Initiatives. BAFTA and GSA will host an information session for eligible filmmakers in the coming weeks.

Directors on the shortlist will be invited to a series of online events during the next four weeks, including speed networking events with industry guests from BAFTA's membership, a panel on US film festivals and a panel on the subject of representation, co-produced by Inner Voice Artists. All of the filmmakers on the shortlist are given the opportunity to apply for and join BAFTA's New Talent programs, which includes year-round access to online events.
