The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has set the Orange British Academy Film Awards for Feb 8, 2009 at London’s Royal Opera House.

The date is in line with the 2008 awards show, which was held February 10, or two weeks prior to the Oscars.

The 2009 Oscars are set for Feb 22, 2009, again two weeks after the BAFTAs.

The BAFTA date again overlaps with the Berlinale.
