BFI Diversity Standards Screen Scotland pilot

Screen Scotland is the latest industry partner to adopt the BFI Diversity Standards, initially running a one-year pilot from 1 April 2022.

This is part of Screen Scotland’s commitment to equalities, diversity and inclusion within the screen sector and with the aim to increase the diversity and inclusion from under-represented groups in that sector.

During the pilot year, meeting the BFI Diversity Standards will be a requirement for applications to Screen Scotland’s Film Development and Production Fund and Film Festivals Fund.

Working together, the BFI and Screen Scotland have incorporated Scotland-specific criteria to help make projects more representative of the Scottish population.
