BAFTA members form a unique community of approximately 7,580 creatives and professionals worldwide working within and making a contribution to the film, games and television industries.
Our curated academy of members sits at the heart of everything we do, from supporting our charitable aims, acting as mentors to emerging young talent, lending their knowledge and experience to our BAFTA Guru programmes, to forming our board and committees, and participating in voting for our Awards.

We work hard to develop meaningful, reciprocal relationships with all of the individuals that make up the Academy; their membership fees generate income that enables us to do what we do, while we provide opportunities for representation and participation. We are proud of our membership and work to constantly improve how we attract applicants that represent the breadth and depth of the ever-evolving film, television and games industries, putting achievement, innovation and expertise first while targeting areas we feel are underrepresented. We accept membership applications throughout the year with the deadline for our annual intake closing on 31 March annually. We are currently accepting games members on a rolling monthly basis.
