The organisers of the DAFTA Awards (DAFTAS) confirmed the date for the 2021 edition.
“As our schedule is dependant on the BAFTA timings, we are happy to reveal that the next DAFTAS awards ceremony will take place on the 10th of February 2021.” Said the founder of the awards Tamara Orlova Alvarez. She continued, “On that day, the judges of The DAFTAS will decide on the winners of the competition. And the filmmakers will have the opportunity to see their short films on a big screen.”
The full judging panel is yet to be confirmed, however, the DAFTAS organisers confirmed that the award-winning English film director Tom Lawes is to re-join the judging team next year.
The 2021 edition will see more trophies, too. “We will add a few more categories like Best Supporting Male Actor and Best Supporting Female Actor for example,” confirmed the organisers.
