About the Awards

Launched at BAFTA in December 2019, the makers & shakers Awards  celebrate excellence in global production. After two successful award ceremonies, we will once again spotlight innovative and impactful contributions made by production professionals, freelancers, film commissions, government film liaison offices, studios, production services, support businesses and facilities.

We believe it is important to recognise the achievements of professionals who work tirelessly to facilitate and support the work of creatives. While traditional awards are fantastic at honouring the best creative work, they often overlook the achievements of professionals who pioneer change within the global industry. This is why the makers & shakers Awards was born: with the intention of celebrating exceptional work that is being done on the ground.
