The BAFTA Fellowship, or the Academy Fellowship, is a lifetime achievement award presented by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) in recognition of "outstanding achievement in the art forms of the moving image".[1] The award is the highest honour the Academy can bestow, and has been awarded annually since 1971.[2][3] Fellowship recipients have mainly been film directors, but some have been awarded to actors, film and television producers, cinematographers, film editors, screenwriters and (since 2007) contributors to the video game industry. In 2002, Merchant Ivory Productions became the first organisation to win the award. People from the United Kingdom dominate the list, but it includes over a dozen U.S. citizens and several from other countries in Europe, though none of the latter have been recognized since 1996. In 2010, Shigeru Miyamoto became the first citizen of an Asian country to receive the award.

The inaugural recipient of the award was the filmmaker and producer Alfred Hitchcock. The award has been made posthumously to the comedy pair Morecambe and Wise, in 1999, and to Stanley Kubrick, who died that year and was made a fellow in 2000.[4][5]
