BAFTA SHORTS 2014 We are only 9 days away from the greatest film awards show on earth - I am of course referring to the 2014 EE BAFTAs. And with the EE British Academy Film Awards comes the British Short Film & British Short Animation award nominations followed by the BAFTA Shorts 2014 nationwide tour programme.

After seeing last years collection of brilliant shorts I highly recommend that you try catch one of the big screen viewings of these highly imaginative and inventive tales. Some of these people will go on to be the stars of tomorrow and this is a great opportunity to enjoy the labour of love of creatives in full flow.

 The feature-length selection of short live action and animated films from the EE British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) will be in cinemas around the UK from 28 February 2014 starting in London at the ICA.

Following a successful first-ever theatrical release of nominated shorts in 2013, BAFTA is partnering for a second year with specialist distributor the Independent Cinema Office (ICO), who will handle all UK theatrical bookings, and the British Council, who will tour the nominated films internationally through their network of offices in 110 countries.

The UK-wide rollout of BAFTA Shorts 2014 begins with a special screening at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) in London on Friday 28 February, attended by the nominated filmmakers.

The 124 minute show will be made up of the following shorts:


Thomas Brodie-Sangster in Orbit Ever After

ORBIT EVER AFTER
 Life in space isn’t easy. And living in orbit, indefinitely, with only your close family for company is even worse. A science fiction romance where two star - crossed lovers overcome all probabilities and sacrifice all they have in order to spend one perfect moment together.

ISLAND QUEEN
Mim has lived her whole life on a little island with her best mate Danny. Her life is idyllic but going nowhere and she fears she’s left it too late to grow up. She makes the impetuous decision to have a baby – surely a one-way ticket to adulthood? Not in Mim’s case, as she finds herself embroiled in a deeply unpleasant situation that no one could have foreseen.
