  • ScreenDaily
Len Rowles joins Pathe UK development team.

Pathe UK has appointed BAFTA-nominated short film producer Len Rowles as creative executive in their development team.

Rowles, who assumes the role recently vacated by Bradley Quirk, will report to Colleen Woodcock, head of creative affairs.

Rowles has produced well-received shorts including Skyborn and Orbit Ever After.

Cameron McCracken, managing director of Pathe UK, said: “It’s great to welcome Len on board. Despite being sickeningly young, she impressed us with the depth of her film knowledge and her ability to analyze a script with an eye to the audience. I’m sure she’ll prove to be a great asset.”

BAFTA Shorts Tour 2014

BAFTA is partnering for the second year with specialist distributor The Independent Cinema Office (Ico) to bring film fans the BAFTA Shorts Tour 2014, the theatrical release of BAFTA’s 2014 animated and live short nominees. Ranging from the weird to the wonderful, this year’s nominees showcase up and coming British talent, showing what they can do when time is not on their side.

Orbit Ever After (2013)

Directed by Jamie Stone

This is a sci-fi comedic short starring Thomas Sangster, known for his roles in Love Actually and Nanny McPhee, as youngster Nigel. Having spent his life in space under the watchful eye of his cautious parents (Mackenzie Crook and Bronaugh Gallagher), he finds himself falling in love with a girl orbiting Earth the wrong way. Regardless of his overprotective parents, Nigel soon decides to sacrifice everything to be with the one he loves. Sweet and amusing, its bittersweet ending does little to diminish its charm.

We Are What We Are, The Book Thief, Non-Stop: this week's new films

We Are What We Are | The Book Thief | Non-Stop | Ride Along | As The Palaces Burn | Unforgiven | Funny Face

We Are What We Are (18)

(Jim Mickle, 2013, Us) Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner. 103 mins

The story of an archaic backwoods family with very good reasons for their insularity, this spends such a long time laying out its twisted domestic set-up, it's almost as if it's in denial about being a horror movie (remade from a Mexican original). It's a wise decision. If you don't know the family's Big Secret already, it would be a shame to spoil it; let's just say it pulls the story into real shock and gore territory.

The Book Thief (12A)

(Brian Percival, 2013, Us/Ger) Sophie Nélisse, Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson. 131 mins

A smart but syrupy wartime tale that traverses well-trodden territory – from The Reader to Life Is Beautiful – as a young girl is adopted by goodly Germans,

Rounding up all the winners from the 67th annual BAFTA Ee British Academy Film Awards..

Tonight marked biggest occasion in the British film calender as the stars of the big screen descended upon London's Royal Opera House as BAFTA hosts the 67th annual Ee British Academy Film Awards, with Stephen Fry once again serving as master of ceremonies for the ninth time.

Steve McQueen's drama 12 Years a Slave may have walked away with the top prize, fending off competition from American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Philomena and Gravity to win Best Film, but it was also a great night for Alfonso Cuaron's space-set thriller, which walked away with six awards including Best Director and Outstanding British Film.

2014 BAFTA Award Winners Led by '12 Years a Slave' and 'Gravity'

Last night the 2014 BAFTA Awards took place, hosted by Stephen Fry from London's Royal Opera House and it was 12 Years a Slave taking Best Film and Best Actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor while Gravity was honored for Outstanding British Film and Alfonso Cuaron was named Best Director. Interestingly enough, 12 Years a Slave only won the two awards while Gravity was the night's biggest winner taking home an additional four awards in technical categories, including Score (Steven Price) and Cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki). It's interesting to see a list of winners where Dallas Buyers Club wasn't nominated for a single award considering its two main characters played by Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto are, more or less, considered locks to win Best Actor and Supporting Actor. As for the BAFTA Awards, it was Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips) taking Best Supporting Actor and while Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) added another Best Actress award to

"Gravity" Dominates BAFTA Nominations

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced the nominations for the British Academy Film Awards and Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" led the pack with 11 nominations including Best Film, British Film (who knew "Gravity" was a British movie?), Director for Cuaron, Screenplay for Cuaron and his son Jonas, and Actress for Sandra Bullock.

The biggest snub in my humble opinion was "Dallas Buyers Club" which appeared nowhere on the nominations list. Apparently, the British Academy did not deem Matthew McConaughey or Jared Leto award-worthy!

The BAFTA Awards will take place on Feb. 16 at the Royal Opera house in London. Will "Gravity" emerge as the victorious movie that night? And by the way, "Gravity" was my No. 1 favorite film of 2013!

Here's the complete list of BAFTA nominations:

BAFTA And The American Society Of Cinematographers Announce Their Nominations

Early this morning saw the announcement of the nominations for the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) awards for 2013. For the most part, they look like all of the other guild nominations we’ve seen over the past month or so (including all five director nominees who were just nominated for the DGA’s top award), but there are a few interesting differences to take note of.

First off, Philomena has a much stronger presence here, but given that it is a British film, it’s hardly surprising. You may also notice a lot of love for Behind the Candelabra, a film that was only shown on TV in the States, making it ineligible for theatrical awards.

However, aside from that, just about all the major players are here. Gravity leads the pack with 11 nominations, including Best Film, Outstanding British Film, Best Director, and Best Actress. 12 Years a
