The BAFTA Awards not only handed out golden masks but also gave a lot of insight on the processes that happened during the filmmaking of each production. In line with the year-long celebration of the BAFTA, a learning event and initiative called BAFTA Film: The Session was launched wherein nominees across different categories of this year’s awards program share their experiences in the field. You can watch these interviews and many more at the BAFTA Guru YouTube channel.
