BAFTA in Scotland is the Scottish branch of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. Formed in 1986,[1] the branch holds two annual awards ceremonies recognising the achievement by performers and production staff in Scottish film, television and video games. These Awards are separate from the British Academy Television Awards and British Academy Film Awards.

Every year, BAFTA Scotland elects a committee to oversee the constitution and functionality of the organisation.[2]
