The Orange British Academy Film Awards – also known as the BAFTAs – take place this Sunday and it is the showpiece event of the UK film calendar.
Amanda Berry is the chief executive of BAFTA and I recently spoke to her about: the awards event; the changes she has made since the late 90s; how it fits in to the awards season; how the nomination process works, what the BAFTA organisation does around the year; and the films up for nomination.
