The BAFTA Film Awards 2023 will see the British Academy of Film and Television Arts once again recognizing the very best movies of the past year. 

This year's frontrunner is Netflix's World War One drama All Quiet on the Western Front. Directed by Edward Berger, the film was honored with nominations in no less than 14 categories including Best Film, Director, and in Film Not In The English Language. That impressive number of nods equals the record for the most nominations for a foreign-language film which was set by 2001's Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. 

Here's what you need to know about this year's ceremony, including the full list of BAFTA nominees, this year's hosting team, and when and where you can watch it.

The BAFTA Film Awards will be held on Sunday, February 19. If you're planning to tune in from the UK, you'll be able to watch the ceremony on BBC One and iPlayer from 7 pm. 

Meanwhile, if you'd like to watch the show in the US, Canada, South Africa, and the Nordic territories, you'll be able to stream the Baftas on BritBox. You can find a full list of where to watch the awards ceremony on the Bafta website.

There are four stars in this year's line-up. Academy and BAFTA-nominated Richard E. Grant (Withnail & I) is on hand to host the ceremony itself. Of the opportunity, he said: "I feel hugely privileged to be hosting the EE BAFTAs for the first time and the opportunity to celebrate the very best of the extraordinary range of this year’s films."

UK TV Presenter Alison Hammond will be hosting a new BAFTA Studio programme which will give viewers tuning in from home an Access-All-Areas experience of the ceremony. Hammond said: "I'm so excited to be hosting at this year's EE BAFTA Film Awards with THE Richard E. Grant. We're going to have a lot of fun bringing the glitz and glam backstage to everyone watching at home around the world. From hanging out with the stars to celebrating the biggest night for cinema, and joining the discussions with film fans, get ready for good vibes only!"

Meanwhile, film critic Ali Plumb and presenter Vick Hope will be bringing us all the action from the BAFTA Red Carpet.

Where are the 2023 BAFTA Film Awards being held? 

After a six-year stint at London's Royal Albert Hall, the BAFTA Film Awards 2023 have moved to a new venue!

This year, the BAFTA Film Awards are being held at the Royal Festival Hall within the Southbank Centre. This brings all of BAFTA's ceremonies under the same roof, as the organization already hosts the TV and Games Awards in the same place.
