BAFTA wins for Film Skills Fund contributing titles

After Love (c) The Bureau / BBC Film / BFI

Three films that contributed to the Film Skills Fund were awarded with BAFTA wins at this year’s ceremony, celebrating the best cinema of the past year.

At a ceremony that celebrated the 60th anniversary of James Bond on screen, the latest 007 outing No Time to Die was awarded the prize for best editing. Jenny Beavan’s work on Disney’s live-action take on Cruella saw her win the BAFTA for best costume design for a fourth time, while Joanna Scanlan won the best actress award for her role in After Love, Aleem Kham’s drama about a widow learning the surprise truth about her late husband.

Accepting the award, she said: "We have to thank BAFTA, we have to thank the BBC, BFI, the Lottery for making small films get made."

Each of the films also welcomed new trainees onto production as part of the Film Trainee Finder programme, a paid placement initiative for new entrants.

Congratulations to the winning films and to the other contributing titles, Ali & Ava and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
