BAFTA Membership Fees - Support and Reductions

Membership fees form an important part of BAFTA’s revenue as a charity, enabling us to effectively carry out our mission to support talent and promote more inclusive and sustainable industries. We believe our membership fees offer good value and we’re grateful to our members for renewing and paying membership fees each year. 
While we rely upon the income generated by membership fees, we recognise there are a range of circumstances which might make it difficult for members to pay for fees, and we do not want anyone to discontinue their membership due to circumstances beyond their control.  

Support with fees 

If you are struggling to afford your fees, members in the UK are encouraged to consider switching to monthly Direct Debit to help spread the cost of membership across the year.   

Each year we are able to provide additional support, including partial fee waivers, to a limited number of members, based on the volume and nature of requests we receive.  

Support should be requested ahead of your annual renewal. To distribute the support available fairly across the membership, we are typically able to offer support for one year only.  

To request this reduction: 

To help us process your request please include answers to the following questions: 

  • What has been the change in your circumstances? 
  • How long do you foresee this lasting? 
  • Anything else you'd like us to know

If you are Deaf, Disabled or Neurodivergent (DDN) and incur additional living or travel expenses that might prevent you from renewing or taking full advantage of your membership, we are able to offer an ongoing 50% reduction on membership fees.
