The BFI is the lead organisation for film in the UK. We are a Government arm’s length body and distributor of Lottery funds for film.

The Director of External Affairs is a new post created with the specific remit of helping the BFI be a proactive and enterprising leader in the world of film, and the wider screen industries.
