Berry

Chief Executive

Berry is widely credited with having boosted the BAFTA Awards’ international profile by moving the ceremony to just ahead of the Oscars. Now, capitalizing on the A-list attention garnered by the festival, she’s helping to forge a new path in Britain in the wake of #MeToo. Earlier this year, BAFTA, the British Film Institute and Women in Film and TV drew up new guidelines to stamp out bullying and sexual harassment in the industry, guidelines that have also become part of the qualification criteria for a film to get into the awards. BAFTA has also introduced diversity requirements for some of the prizes, part of an effort to encourage everyone across the British filmmaking chain to make meaningful changes to their projects to become more inclusive.
