  • Visitor Information

Female Firsts is a new BAFTA exhibition dedicated to the work and achievements of over 90 women from BAFTA's history. The exhibition will feature previously un-exhibited photography alongside footage from BAFTA's archive. Part of the exhibition, BAFTA will open its doors to the public for an Open Weekend. The weekend will have a curated programme of screenings inspired by the exhibition and the women's stories in this year's BAFTA-nominated films. On the line-up is Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; BAFA Kids TV Preview: Joe All Alone; I Am Not a Witch; The Shape of Water; and Lady Bird. Visitors can book tickets to a screening or just visit the exhibition.
