Find out more about voting and the benefits available to BAFTA members
The knowledge and experience of our voting membership is vital to the integrity and credibility of the awards, raising standards and inspiring new talent. Our voting members receive access to films, games, and programmes, and dedicate their time to judging excellence and talent across all crafts and sectors. Voting members are allocated voting places for our Awards according to their experience and expertise.
Alongside voting for our Awards, members also form our Sector Committees, recommending to the BAFTA Board how best to carry out the Academy’s mission in their respective industry sectors.
Screenings and Events
Our global year round programme of events is designed to share the knowledge and expertise of our winners and nominees, and promote a more inclusive and sustainable industry. The events programme includes screenings, Q&As, masterclasses, career advice and networking. Our events programme is currently available online and accessible by members across the UK and internationally.
The redevelopment of our historic headquarters, BAFTA 195 Piccadilly, is well underway. We’re looking forward to opening the building in late 2021, allowing us to dramatically increase our charitable work to find and support new talent, while hosting a spectacular new members’ club on the new top floor of the building.
Our partners will often make special offers available to our members. This currently includes free weekday access to several UK cinema chains, and access to neighbouring members’ clubs while 195 is undergoing redevelopment.
