The 71st British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) was characterised by its wide ranging political messages of support and solidarity towards the victims of sexual harassment and bullying.
All BAFTA attendees displayed their support for “Time’s Up” and “Me Too” campaigns by dressing in dark colours and by wearing Time’s Up badges — all as a means of fostering further respect and equality in the film business after Hollywood’s sexual harassment scandals.
The night’s biggest winner was Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which took five prizes including “Best Film”, “Leading Actress” Frances McDormand, “Original Screenplay” for writer-director Martin McDonagh, “Supporting Actor” Sam Rockwell and “Outstanding British Film”.
CM would like to especially congratulate BAFTA winner for “Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer” I Am Not a Witch, for whom Creativity Media did their post-production and worked closely with.
The story takes place in a Zambian village, where 9 year old Shula is accused of witchcraft and is thus faced with two choices: to either accept her supernatural reputation and stay in the local village, or to be transformed into a goat that may be killed and eaten.
Producer Emily Morgan’s and Writer-Director Rungano Nyoni’s pioneering feature film has been praised by critics and audiences worldwide; and the story has been referred to as a bold satirical parable that encompasses both magic and misogyny in its central themes.
It is the second consecutive year that CM has done post production and worked very closely with inspiring BAFTA winners for “Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer”, including 2017 BAFTA winner Under The Shadow.
We hope to score a hat-trick next year for another win, as we continue to work on and to be inspired by these outstanding films, and the immense talents working behind them.
