Among the productions in the running are For Those in Peril, with four nominations, closely followed by Case Histories, Fire in the Night, I am Breathing, Murder and the gangster film The Wee Man, all with two each.
Ford Kiernan, Peter Mullan and Sharon Rooney go head-to-head in the best actor or actress on television category.
A series of programmes made about the forthcoming independence referendum, presented by Iain Macwhirter, columnist for our sister paper The Herald, is also in the running for a Bafta.
However, the high-profile Scottish movies Filth and Sunshine On Leith are not in the running for this year's awards.
They were released after the deadline for inclusion, which was July 31.
Alan de Pellette, acting director of Bafta Scotland, said that the organisation would not "bend the rules" to include Filth and Sunshine on Leith this year, because then that change would have to apply to every category.
On the Scottish film industry, Mr de Pellette said: "It is a difficult time, but it has always been difficult to make a film in Scotland.
"It is a struggle to get films made, it is hard to get finance, but one thing we have noticed is that there are more and more very low budget films being made.
"The challenge then is getting them seen.
"It is a live issue and a thorny issue."
Fife-born Edith will host the awards ceremony on November 17 at the Radisson Hotel in Glasgow.
She said: "It is with immense joy and a huge honour that I have been asked to host the Scottish Bafta's again this year."
