Berry

CEO

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.

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.
