Bring back the Best Director Award at Scottish New Talent BAFTA Awards
Dear Scottish BAFTA New Talent Awards Team,
We hereby want to note how important we think bringing back the Best Director Award at your ceremony is, as we believe it will support the future of many directors, aspiring and established alike.
Accolades are very important in the industry and even with the Best Picture Award still on the list, in classical terms this is mostly seen as the Producer's achievement.
As you have many different awards that you give out, we feel that the Directors shouldn't be missed out, as they are the force that combines all the others together in unison to create the final film.
The creator of the petition knows the director Michael Ferns who last won the Best Director Award back in 2010 and that it has fared him very well, and we think more upcoming directors also deserve that opportunity, as well as it being important for the future of Scottish Film and its talent.
This is why would like to show you how many people are in support of the Best Director Award being reinstated and inquire you to consider our suggestion.
