BFI Governor (Member)

The BFI Board appointed Gerry Fox, long-time BFI Member and award-winning filmmaker, as a Governor (Member) for a renewable four-year term from February 2017.

The BFI is the lead organisation for film in the UK with the ambition to create a flourishing film environment in which innovation, opportunity and creativity thrive. We are a Government arm’s length body, a distributor of Lottery funds for film and a registered charity governed by Royal Charter.

The BFI Board of Governors, chaired by Josh Berger, includes one Governor (Member) position. When the post is next vacant, BFI Patrons, Champions and Members, with an active involvement and/or knowledge in film, will be eligible to apply as long as they have the support of at least two other Patrons, Champions or Members. Suitable candidates will then be interviewed by the Nominations and Appointments Committee who will make a recommendation to the Board of Governors.

Governor positions are unpaid, except for the reimbursement of travel expenses, but BFI Governors enjoy free BFI Membership and have opportunities to attend BFI and film industry events.

Please note that the BFI Board of Governors resolved in January 2016 that this application process should replace the election process as the last two elections were invalid because less than ten percent of the electorate voted.
