 BAFTA is looking for nominations as to who the unsung heroes of British cinema are.

Following the successful launch of the initiative last year, BAFTA is once again on the hunt for people who have done something wonderful, purely fuelled by their love of film.

Last year, Dan Ellis of Jam Jar Cinema got the nod, along with Iain MacColl of Screen machine. And the pair were duly invited to the BAFTA Film Awards as their prize.

A similar prize is on offer this time around. As such, candidates are being sought. Who are the people, then, who have fought to save local cinemas, or set up film festivals, or run film clubs? Who are the ones highlighting and celebrating film?

Then BAFTA wants to hear about it. The website for entries is right here.

All entries will then go before a panel judged by Amma Asante, Edith Bowman, Paul Greengrass, Jack Howard and Andrew Orr, who will select the winners.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 2nd December at 10am.
